Cage Rat Animal shelter Hamster Muridae Rat Muridae Gerbil Muroidea Degu

I've tried kind of massaging it to see if she was constipated but no poo is coming out.
I have seen her go (RARELY) and I've tried feeding her pumpkin seeds for fiber but if anything it's getting worse.
Does anyone know what this is? :(

Ouch, looks like it could be an abscess or even an infected anal gland (common in dogs, don't know about rats). I'd look to take her to a vet as soon as you can. Until then, try to do warm compresses with a damp cloth.
