I am a worried about my daughter, I am taking her to the doctors in the morning but I'm concerned if they will diagnose correctly or take it seriously. My 3 yr old daughter on 4 or 5 occasions over the last month has complained about stomach pains, twice I have administered pain relief and on all occasions it has subsided after 10 or 15 mins. The first couple of times I wasn’t sure if she was pretending, but she was doubling up and quite upset. She also has been complaining of a pain in her bottom, and points inside her anus. Tonight, she complained again and I noticed a small lump on her anus, like a tag.
What could this be, could it be related to the random stomach pains or is it something common that most children get?
