What cause pain while pooping in a child?

My 3 year old daughter complains her bottom hurts when trying to poop. She is in tears then says she's ok when she stops trying. Sits on potty several times but no poop only complaints then after about 20 attempts, she does poop but cries and complains. No hard stools, actually more runny since yesterday.
