Blood Spots On A 1 Week Old Baby’s Diaper?
Dear doctor, I have a 1 week old baby, sometimes there are blood spots on the diaper when my baby pees. Is that normal, should I check with the hospital? thanks
From the information you have conveyed, blood spots on diapers are often found in baby girls. When a baby girl is born, the mother's female hormones still affect the baby at the beginning of birth, causing blood spots to appear on the diaper, and this condition is not much, and maybe also rare. This condition will disappear after your baby's hormones are normal.
However, we were unable to find out the gender of your baby.
However, however, if your baby is a boy, then it is necessary to do an evaluation of the penis area, so that you can find out whether there is injury to the penis or prepuce of your baby's penis. In addition, it is necessary that you evaluate your baby's rectal area.
However, if this condition does not decrease in frequency or in the next 1 month these complaints still occur, then you can discuss with your pediatrician for an examination and evaluation of this complaint.
An examination will be carried out to ensure that the cause of this bleeding is a normal condition or due to certain abnormalities.
That's the info we can convey, also read pseudomenstruation.
