A member asked:
Without : Without seeing it i cannot comment on what it is. Red spots on the back of the tongue might just be the normal tongue (the taste buds get really big in back!). Geographic tongue is also not a problem, and without pain or other symptoms either is possible. There are infections that can cause discolorations, so if it persists, have a pediatrician or dentist see it to help identify if it is abnormal... But someone needs to see it to diagnose it.
A member asked:
Nosebleeds : Nosebleeds can be one sided, and the blood can drain down your throat and get swallowed. If you cough, the blood can get into your mouth. If this continues to be a problem, see your doctor.
A female asked:
Lactose : Lactose intolerance typically causes cramping, bloating, diarrhea, and gas. Immediate vomiting after milk leads me to think he might have a milk allergy. Most kids with milk allergies outgrow them, but some can become worse over time and kids with one food allergy might be predisposed to others. Knowing his risks can help introducing new foods. Talk with his doctor about this.
