She is suffering from constipation. There are various reasons for that, not eating enough fibre, changes in eating habits, ignoring urge to pass stool, medications, not drinking enough fluids, anxiety or local causes- fissure. And treatment requires you to find the cause and treat that. Start by increasing fibre content in her diet, oata are a good option Make her drink 1 to 1,5 litre of water a day Let her relax and pass poo, make her sit on the toilet seat for 15 mins min daily. If these dont help then medications for softening stools can be given.
