Good night, my child is 21 months old, my child is coughing, then vomiting accompanied by bleeding from the nose. Is that dangerous or not?

1 Answer:

Hello Anita, thank you for asking.


Cough is quite severe, often causing the gag reflex due to increased pressure in the stomach. This is easier for children than adults. A severe cough can cause injury to the throat, resulting in blood spots. Your statement is somewhat ambiguous, whether blood comes out of the nose or a child vomits mixed with blood and comes out of the nose.


If only blood comes out of the nose, then there may be a nosebleed or other wound in the respiratory tract. If blood comes out with vomiting, it may be that blood comes from a sore throat, comes from the digestive tract like the stomach, or comes from the lungs which then comes out along with vomiting. Blood from the lungs may be caused by a lung infection. Blood from the digestive tract may be caused by an injury to the stomach.


You should consult with your pediatrician about this. Doctors need to do a complete physical examination and supporting examinations. Investigations can be in the form of X-rays or MRI to assess the condition of organs. Therapy and actions will be adjusted to the results of the examination. In the meantime, give your child optimal nutrition, and drink plenty of water. If vomiting, immediately bow the child or tilt to the left when lying down. This is to prevent vomiting so as not to enter the respiratory tract.


Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
