What causes stomach pain and hard stools in a child?

Hi my daughter is 3 years old and has for the last 2 days had white poos they are solid and she has been getting a lot of wind as well, she has been grumpy and not her normal self today but apart from that is well. She said that she had tummy pains this afternoon but then didnt mention it again, I thought it may be from all the wind. How worried should i be????

Hi,

This might be from constipation. Try giving lot of fruits and vegetables along with enough amount of fluids. If no relief in 3-4 days, we can give her laxatives like Lactulose for few days.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
