Child has problem passing poo

Patient

Q: My 2 and half year old daughter has been toilet training for 2weeks and has been doing really well, until today. She complained of a sore belly and bum. She passed a resonable size, hardish poo in her pants. But was very upset and didnt want me to clean it up. she kept saying "sore mummy" but her bottom didnt look red. All day after that she wanted to go to the toilet but was scared and keep saying "sore bum mummy" She has never had a problem with consterpation before, if that is what it is. Do you have any suggestions because i dont want to turn her off going to the toilet
