  • If it is only a little bit, I wouldnt worry. Coughing can cause straining on all areas of the body and could have just ruptured a tiny blood vessel. If you continue to see blood or the amount increases, then I would seek medical attention. Also, try calling her pediatrician and relaying your concern and he/she will be able to tell you weather or not to come back in!

  • Oh, and if they took a rectal temperature, that could be why too! I know babies dont like it and often them wiggling and fighting the thermometer can cause tiny cuts as well!

  • I would call the doc just to be sure but since it was just a little i wouldn't worry too much, but i know talking to the doctor can help

  • Give your doc a call, but don't worry too much. Her body seems to be going through a lot, and a little blood is usually ok. :)

  • Thats a lot of medicine! Anyways, I would call ped, but probably normal with temp taking.
