Baby’s Nose Is Injured When Cleaned?
Hello, I want to ask .. My child is +/- 1.5 months old. When I tried to remove the dry nasal discharge in the nose it was injured and bleeding I finally stopped it and it didn’t come out. Will it be dangerous? What should I do about the wound? The blood doesn’t come out the nose. Then what is the correct way to clean my baby’s nasal discharge ??? Thank you in advance
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Dirt on the nose that has accumulated and hardened in the baby's nasal cavity, can indeed feel quite annoying, because it is blocking the baby's airway. In fact, as long as this nasal discharge is not overproduced, for example to make your baby runny or runny nose, this is nothing to worry about, let alone forcibly gouged to bleed. Naturally, the nasal cavity will have its own mechanism so that the dirt can disappear and no longer interfere with breathing. When bathing, you can also clean the dirt on the baby's nose, namely by gently squeezing the right and left sides of his nose with his hands or a clean washcloth soaked in warm water. Or, you can also do nasal irrigation using NaCl solution so that the dirt in the nose can come out more optimally. Nowadays, there are also many special tools available to help suck the dirt from the baby's nose so that it no longer clogs but does not make the baby hurt or feel uncomfortable.
Your actions remove dirt in the baby's nose to make injury can indeed be very worrying. As long as the nose bleeding doesn't come out much or flow, and it doesn't make your baby look sick, fussy, have trouble sleeping, or experience other complaints, there really isn't any special treatment suggested. You can gently squeeze the right and left sides of the baby's nose with clean hands, or plug the nasal cavity (with cotton wool) so that the bleeding stops, while allowing the baby to breathe through the mouth. Avoid carelessly giving baby medicine, nasal drops, or other substances carelessly without consulting first to the doctor. If with the above steps bleeding continues to come out of your baby's nose, or if you find your baby looking in pain and experiencing other more severe complaints as described above, do not hesitate to check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician to get the best treatment. yes..
I hope this helps.
