Does she have any other sympXXXXX XXXXXke cold, cough?

Is there any fever?

How is stool?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No cold or cough no fever and stools look fine she doesn't even seem to be in pain she only crys after she spits and that's only for about 5 mins then she is fine
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 10 months ago.
Thank you for the input.

Those streaks are unlikely to be blood.

Sometimes old or altered blood can be brown.

Blood can come from vomiting,allergy.

As the doctor has tested it & did not find any evidence of blood in it, you need not to worry.

Rapid Gastroccult test is available to see the presence of blood.

Probably doctor has done it.

Altered milk, mixture with bile can be a possibility.
