Dr. Heidi Nelson answered:

What can i do for my two year old's bleeding gums?

Why&when it started?

Aids
The larger question is when it started and why. If the child is teething, the problem will resolve with time and good consistent gentle cleaning. Cold teething aids can help. If the gums are bleeding because of food and bacteria, then again, the answer is obvious. If the baby seems sick, different or has other bleeding issues, it's urgent to have the pediatrician evaluate.

My toothbrush was used to scrub poo off the toilet.seconds later i brushed my teeth with it. i have bleeding gums.can you catch hep a from day old poo?

Yuk!

Good_question
Three issues here. First, who didn't throw the toothbrush out right away? Second, you can catch other things as well from the contaminated toothbrush but I would be overly concerned. Third, if you have bleeding gums you need to see a dentist as that is an indication of periodontal (gum) problems which will only get worse over time. A short term illness gets better, while lost teeth is a lifetime.

It's long enough to susupect something's up. Try a Home pregnancy test, then see your MD. In addition, healthy gums do NOT bleed. You should see a dentist to see if you have Gingivitis!

Why do my 2 year old experience chronic constipation with bleeding?

Slow transit

Bleeding
2yo kids are busy explorers who like to do what they want & avoid doing what they don't. By 2 they have learned they can hold a poop. If they do, the delay allows the stool to bulk up & dry & cause pain with passage.A scratch or fissure in the anus adds blood to the passing poo.Then they decide to avoid stooling when they can because it hurts & the cycle continues until treated.

My 2-year-old son slipped, chipped his front tooth, bleeding from nose. what should i do?

Depends

Bloody_nose
If the chip is only into the enamel he should have no problems with it other than possibly being sharp to his soft tissue. If the tooth is broken to the nerve then you would probably notice blood oozing from the tooth, then he would need it checked. Best to have a dentist look at it either way. Nosebleed is possible soft tissue injury. Probably should have that checked if you think it is serious.

my 6 year old had circumcission two weeks ago .he has started bleeding when he urinates is this normal ?

See your DR

Bleeding
If he is experiencing bleeding while urinating, he should follow up with his surgeon/ doctor who did the circumcision. Two weeks out from a circumcision, I would expect him to be close to fully healed. He definitely needs an evaluation!
