From the info you convey,
1. The presence of nosebleeds or nosebleeds or epistaxis is not a typical symptom of a patient with G6 deficiency. So that the presence of epistaxis may not be caused by a history of G6pada.
Some of the causes of epistaxis that often occur in children can be caused by several things, such as:
2. infection of the nose
3. Nasal polyps
5. blood clotting disorders
If epistaxis is not treated properly or recurs frequently it can cause comorbid complaints such as dizziness or anemia
2. To ascertain the cause of epistaction in your child, it is necessary to do a direct examination by an ENT doctor so that the ENT doctor can evaluate your child's nasal cavity, perform the necessary investigations and evaluate the medical history of the child with G6 deficiency. Furthermore, management will be given according to the results obtained.
3. Management can be given with non-surgical care. Generally, treatment is based on the cause, the results obtained are quite good. Therefore, to find out the cost, the most important step is to know the cause, so that the doctor can provide initial treatment. If the doctor plans a particular treatment at a large cost, then this can be discussed with the ENT doctor in the future. However, with an initial checkup, you can plan the first steps of home treatment.
