An 8-year-old Child With A Nosebleed And A Backache?
my child is 8 years old 2 months lately he had a nosebleed during the 2 months period of nosebleed as much as 3x. He often complained about his back hurts.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Nosebleeds can occur due to many possibilities and in most cases are harmless. The following are some of the possibilities:
impact or injury to the nose
nasal blurring (common when a child has a cold)
habit of picking the nose
foreign objects in the nose (usually in younger children who still often put things in the nose)
nasal polyps or nasal septum deviation (crooked nose)
bleeding disorders (can be due to any reason, such as drug side effects, infections, autoimmune diseases, cancer, etc.)
You can pay attention in advance to other symptoms experienced by the child, for example whether the child is having a cold, does the child often scratch / rub his nose, does the nosebleeds occur after the child noses, is there a nasal congestion, sneezing, fever, etc.? As long as there isn't too much blood coming out and the nosebleeds can stop on their own, you don't really need to worry too much. If indeed you want to take your child to the doctor, you can take your child to the ENT doctor so that you can further examine the presence or absence of certain abnormalities in your child's nose. If there is indeed no specific abnormality and the ENT doctor suspects there is a certain abnormality in the blood (bleeding disorders), the doctor may also refer to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
