Hello Siti, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com. We understand the concerns that you feel.
Nosebleeds in the medical world are called epistaxis. Complaints can occur anytime and anywhere. Children more often experience nosebleeds due to blood vessels that are more presentable than adults. In children who often experience nosebleeds certainly need to know the exact cause. Some causes of the complaint include:
Cold air, for example, is too long in the air conditioned room
Trauma, like a nose bumping
Children often pick the nose
Side effects of drugs such as ibuprofen
Certain medical conditions such as blood clotting abnormalities
To find out the exact cause of course it is necessary to do a complete examination ranging from physical examination and other additional checks that are needed such as blood tests, allergy tests, X-rays, and so on.
For now, all you can do is:
Keep the child calm when bleeding occurs
Don't bend your head up, keep your child down slightly
Use a clean tissue or cloth and press on the nostrils, wait up to 10 minutes, if it still happens, do it again
Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in a child's room
Avoid exposure to allergies to avoid complaints that often arise
Make sure the child has enough rest, fatigue can also cause children to experience complaints more easily
If complaints are still ongoing and more and more bleeding and do not stop immediately to the emergency room or doctor for further treatment. In the midst of the pandemic COVID-19 at this time it was advisable to remain at home and not travel, but if there are symptoms that are emergency must still immediately see a doctor with a mask and avoid using public transportation, as well as maintaining distance with others.
