Hi there - we are...
Hi there - we are using the nose frida and saline drops on our 6 week old baby. She’s been stuffy. We noticed twice now that there is a little dried blood in her mucus. I assume that this is just from irritation from the suctioning. Is that right?

Thank you for waiting.
I am very sorry for her symptoms.
I understand your anxiety.
Trauma is a common cause of such bleeding.
Suctioning is the likely cause here.
Small bleed is not worrying.

Dried bit of blood does not indicate any active bleed at the moment.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.
Wish her healthy life.
Regards.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
