Handling In Children Who Often Nosebleeds?
My sister is 6 years old. In less than a year, she often got nosebleeds a long time ago, nosebleeds became more intense one month, 4 times. I have often brought it to a general practitioner. But the doctor suggested that I wait until the new Mimosan child is given a referral to a doctor.
Hello, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
The following are some of the causes of nosebleeds in children, namely: ambient temperature that is too hot, often scraping the nose too deep, the occurrence of nasal collisions, the presence of foreign objects in the nose, allergies in children, infections, deformities of the nose, or experiencing blood clotting abnormalities such as hemophilia. The most common cause of nosebleeds in children is allergies.
Here's what you can do at home:
- If a child has a nosebleed, head down slightly and press the soft nose less with the hands for about 5-10 minutes to help stop the bleeding. But if the bleeding hasn't stopped, you can repeat it again.
- If the child has a specific allergy, avoid triggers the emergence of allergies. So that nosebleeds are not repeated
- Avoid children inserting foreign objects into the nostrils
- Avoid trauma / injury to the nose
- Avoid scraping the nose too deep and rough
If complaints do not improve and occur continuously, you should consult with an ENT specialist so that a deeper examination can be done. And therapy can be done according to the results of the examination.
