Toddler Constipated

My daughter of 3 years old has not passed motion for past 3 days. She has been trying since yesterday to pass it but didn't have any success and eventually gets tired. Is there any medicine that can quickly release her motion? Also we are expecting that the stool would be hard as it would be excreted after 3 days. Any medicine to ease out the pain?

Kindly visit a Pediatric Surgeon, who will examine the child and advise you regarding the further line of management. Giving laxatives in children who may have retained stool mass may damage the anal canal.
