Coughing On A Baby Accompanied By Blood?
Hello, I want to ask … my baby is only 46 days old, suddenly he coughs and spits out some blood, may I know if it’s dangerous? And what should I do immediately
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Conditions experienced by your child can mean various things, such as acute respiratory infections, viral infections, bacteria, disorders of blood clotting factors, to severe diseases such as tumors.
This condition may still not be too dangerous if it is experienced by an adult who has indeed been coughing for a long time, but the problem is with your child, his age is very early and you mentioned that he had just coughed. For this reason, it is better if we immediately check it with a pediatrician to do a thorough check of his condition. Her child's doctor will also ask about your pregnancy history, your delivery history, and your baby's medical history so far. Maybe there will also be supporting investigations such as X-rays to make a possibility. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
In the meantime, try to stay calm, and keep it away from sick people, dust, pollution, and cigarette smoke. Continue to give ASI, and if the coughing of the blood is more frequent, do not hesitate to take him to the nearest hospital emergency room. So, hopefully answering your question.
