Good Morning,

My daughter stools are very hard and dry, its been this way for a very long time. Its not constipation cause she goes out everyday but its always hard and dry. is she missing some multivitamins. At the moment she take Scotts. Should I be giving her something for her stomach to loosen the stools.

Thank you

Your daughter's hard stools do mean that she is constipated. She needs more fibre, fruit and fluid in her diet.
