My daughter (aged 2 years 7 months) is complaining of a mild "stomach pain" around the navel area for the past 2 weeks. Because of the current pandemic situation we are somewhat hesitant about taking her physically to a doctor. The pain - which comes on & goes 3-4 times a day - lasts for a few seconds to a few minutes. Though she doesn't become restless (& doesn't cry) when it occurs, she does lie down on her stomach for a while or starts stroking it with her palm. Incidentally, of late she's very constipated - passes hard stools only once in the day or, at times, skips pooping for the entire day ! She's drinking very little water (despite our insistence) and refusing to take any fruit other than banana & mausambi (in juice form). Had deworming medicines about 8 months ago. Please advise. Thanks.
