Hello, my son woke up in the morning with a little bit of blood on his sheet. He is 15 months old. I am hoping it is just teething? He has had a persistent cough at night for several months now, but family doctor said that was typical for little ones fighting off so many different bugs. I m worried the blood could be from his coughing? Hoping it s just teething.
Hi.... persistent violent cough can occasionally cause blood smeared sputum like this. Nothing to worry about this if the child is otherwise active and playing around. But if she is having breathing difficulty high grade fever I suggest you consult your pediatrician.
