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.

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.
