It could just be surface damage from constipation but, I would still take her to the ER! Better safe than sorry.. Keep us posted!

Blood after a hard stool is quite common in kids. You ought to take her to your pediatrician, during regular hours, to discuss the constipation and your long-term approach and to confirm that there is nothing else going on.

Best of luck!
