Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Coughs and colds can occur for a variety of reasons. The emergence of bloody bowel movements, accompanied by constipation, nausea, and red spots on the back after experiencing a cold cough and taking antibiotics can occur due to the side effects of the antibiotics, or even the result of the course of the disease previously experienced.
Cold coughs are often caused by allergies. Some examples of common cold cough allergens are cold, dust, mites, pollen, animal fleas, and so on. Not only that, a cold cough can also occur as a manifestation of infection, either infection of the respiratory tract or other organ systems. This infection can have various causes, ranging from viruses or bacteria. Not all causes of this cold cough need to be treated with antibiotics. Only a cold cough that occurs related to bacterial infection needs to be treated with antibiotics. Therefore, you should not give antibiotics to children unless you have checked your child with a doctor.
Drug allergies, including antibiotics, can appear on a mild to severe spectrum. As for various complaints, ranging from defecation, nausea, and red spots on your child's back, it can happen because of this allergic manifestation. This allergy occurs when the body considers the entry of a drug into the body as dangerous, even though it is not. In more severe conditions, allergies can also cause the sufferer to experience shortness of breath, severe vomiting, heart palpitations, and even shock (shock). Often times, allergies appear unexpectedly. Especially in patients who do not pay attention to their previous history of allergies.
However, as mentioned above, the various complaints that your child is currently experiencing can also occur due to a previous course of the disease which made your baby have a cold cough. Some of the possibilities that can trigger all these complaints are dengue fever (dengue fever), typhoid fever (typhoid), tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the throat and tonsils), food poisoning, stomach ulcers, measles, varicella (chicken pox), hand foot and mouth disease. (Singapore flu), scarlet fever, and so on.
We recommend that you check your child directly to a doctor or pediatrician. If the complaint has lasted more than 3 days, it is possible that it is not just a regular examination, the doctor will also direct your child to undergo laboratory tests, allergy tests, ultrasound, or supporting tests. others to determine the best treatment.
In the meantime, you can first do these tips:
Give your child enough breast milk and water
Avoid the child coming into contact with cold, dust, and other substances that can trigger allergies
Give children healthy solids, consistency according to their age
When nausea still appears, give the child a little food, not a lot, if necessary, give him soft textured food first
Make sure you keep food, drink, and other objects clean around your child
Avoid giving drugs carelessly to children without a doctor's prescription
Hope it helps ..
