dd crying in pain from a sore bottom, it is a bit red. No sign of worms. Would you keep her off school and what could it be?

I thought at first it was piles and she was constipated but she has been doing dinasour size poos. I think she is in pain and is not wanting to poo so it is psychological constipation if that makes sense. She is 7.

She is crying and begging not to go to school which is not like her.

sounds like anal fissures maybe? no wouldn't keep off school but would work on constipation and get some cream on there.

I wonder if something else is going wrt to school??

She is now saying her vagina hurts.

She can't go to the toilet without crying out in pain.

She is very happy at school, I know because she has friends coming round, she witters on about school all day and I spoke to her teacher the other day about how she was settling in.

I don;t allow her to have time off for minor ailments but she seems in real pain.

Could it be thrush, she is describing it as burning.

We rang NHS direct once as DD was screaming with pain in/from her vagina. I am not one for panicking but this was 'different' and I sense that with your post. We sat her in a luke warm bath as they advised and it seemed to pass. Have no other suggestions at all, but wanted to say I know where you're coming from (I think)

She is saying it hurts more when she does poos and wees. I think she is confused to be honest and tired. But every time she has gone to the loo it has sounded as if she is giving birth - but she is quite dramatic. Having said that she is in pain.

We did the bath earlier and it did relieve it.

thrush could go further back maybe.....

She was in bed but was writhing in pain on the bed, we tried sudocream and calpol at bed time at half seven.

I am laughing, even when in pain she manages to be a complete diva and has dp running around after her.

I had a similar situation a couple of years ago with my dd (also a drama queen). In the end i took her to the docs, and got the practice nurse to check her over for thrush type problems, then we gave her lactulose for a while, plus dietary changes, to get past the constipation, and help with the psychological issues with expecting the pain.

It did take a while to disappear completely, there would be good days and bad days, and in retrospect I thnk she had a small anal fissure. So if you go down the same route, keep up the plan for far longer than the symptoms last.

Good luck - and I know it can be hard to keep sympthetic when you know how much they can ham it up, but if it is an anal fissure, it will be very painful.

She went to school today and greeted me with "Guess what mum I got the poo out!"
Thanks bamzooko I do think she was genuinely in pain even if she was hamming it up.
