Stomach ache in 2 year old

My 2 year old daughter has been complaining of stomach ache for 4-5 days now. It seems that it is especially worse when she passes bowls.
Last night she complained about a pain in her side, and when I touched the area, her left leg came up.
I took her to the chemist, but he said it is nothing to worry about.
I don' t want to take her to the doctor for no reason as my medical aid is exhausted.
Other than the compalining of paid, everything else seems normal.
She passes bowls 2 - 3 times per day, is eating enough.
She does drink a lot of milk though, don' t know if that has something to do with it.

You must always take note when a young child like your daughter complains about a pain and is able to clearly inform you that the pain is in her stomach. She may have a urinary infection. She needs to be seen by a doctor. If you do not have medical aid cover, take her to the emergency department of your nrearest state hospital.
