Thank you for your query
You should show your child to a pediatrician. She may be having lactose intolerance, rectal prolapse, fissure or malabsorption syndrome. All these things will require dietary modifications. But a diagnosis is must. Avoid self medication as it can be really hazardous in a child
Hope that helps
God bless you
