My son is almost 9 weeks old and has had a series of health problems. He has been on zantac and nexium for what his doctor is calling a "complicated case of acid reflux".
On top of that, 2 weeks ago we took him to the ER because he woke up from a nap screaming and had a pool of blood in his mouth. It was everywhere...it filled under his tongue, between his gums and cheeks, etc.(They ended up saying this was from his stomach acid popping a blood vessel in his throat as it came up) Anyways, while we were examining the rest of his body we saw a blood spotted rash that was on his tummy, theighs, back, and legs. They said that these were from blood vessels popping under the skin and were concerned about him having a blood clotting disorder. However, all the tests came back normal so they wrote it off as a "freak accident" no lie...
This morning, little man has 2 new blood spotted rashes: One on his stomach and the other on his neck. He has a second opinion appoitment with another doctor tomorrow and his regular pedi has not answered my voicemail yet this morning.
I know it is a long shot but does ANYONE know what this could be or what we should do?
Try a childrens ER. They tend to work harder than regualar ER's when it comes to babies. I have noticed with my kids, they blown stuff off but as soon as I take them to a childrens ER. They get fixed quick.
