Q.

Hard tummy

My 27mnths old toddler' s tummy is very hard. She also has a constipation problem. I do include alot of fibre in her diet and dry fruit like raisins. Yesterday she told me that she is sore at her bottom and it felt like a knob. Could that be a pile?
Should i take her to a paediatrician? Please advise?

I am concerned about your little girl. She seems to be extremely constipated. It is best for her to be seen by a paediatrican so that a proper diagnosis can be made and the correct tretament prescribed.
