PLEASE I WANT TO KNOW WHAT COULD CAUSE BLEEDING GUM OF A CHILD WHO IS JUST GROWING TEETH?
There are a few reasons why bleeding can occur in a child's mouth at this age, it could simply be a new tooth growing (erupting) or it could be inflammation of the gum (this can happen if his teeth are not brushed daily) or it could be a herpes simplex virus infection among other things. My recommendation is take him to see a dentist or paediatric dentist so they can give you the exact diagnosis. On a final note to everyone who's reading this, if you noticed you or your child bleeding from any other part of your body, say your eyes for example without any prior injury, you wouldn't ignore it. Please do not ignore bleeding from yours or your child's mouth or gums, it is NOT NORMAL and can have serious consequences. Blood by design, is supposed to stay inside the body, when we see it outside for no apparent reason we should be concerned and find out why.

It is advisable to take your child back to the hospital to be seen by a paediatrician for a review. The child might be irritable, hence the crying and the reason for this needs to be ascertained.
