Thank you NadhifArkan for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, coughing in children can be caused by various conditions including respiratory infections, which can be pneumonia, pulmonary tuberculosis, or flu, besides coughing in children can also arise as a result Aspiration of food due to vomiting or spitting up experienced by children, so that food enters the respiratory tract. In such conditions symptoms may arise:
- The child looks claustrophobic
- fever may develop
- it's hard to eat
- breath sounds
In such conditions, the child usually needs to be examined by the relevant doctor so that an examination can be carried out to confirm the condition before giving a related treatment. Meanwhile, regarding defecating blood, this is a condition that can be experienced as a result of:
- gastrointestinal bleeding
- The abrasions around the rectum
- gastrointestinal infection
- gastrointestinal obstruction
In such cases, you should immediately have your child checked by the doctor concerned so that he can do a direct examination to confirm the condition before he can give a related treatment.
