How To Deal With Nosebleeds In Children
..today from the morning my child is bleeding … but a little bit looks at the edge of his nose. he is not complaining that he is sick … If he is exhausted he also gets a lot of nosebleeds but today there are 3 times …
Good morning, thanks for the question
Nosebleeds or epistaxis are bleeding that flows out of the nose from the nasal cavity or the back of the nose to the throat. In the case of children epistaxis is also often caused by the habit of children scraping the inside of the nose causing injuries and then cause mild bleeding. Epistaxis can also be triggered by environmental influences, such as living in high altitude areas, low air pressure, or environments with very dry air.
In the conditions above cause rupture of small blood vessels at the tip of the nasal lobe, resulting in bleeding that is easy to be stopped. Steps that can be taken at home when you have a nosebleed include squeezing your nose for several minutes, and pointing your head forward to prevent blood from swallowing into the stomach or into the respiratory tract.
This condition is not dangerous but the child needs to be taught to stop picking his own nose. Beware if complaints of recurring nosebleeds are accompanied by high fever in the last 3 days, shortness of breath, or the child looks very weak then immediately do further tests by the doctor for further treatment.
That's all, hope you can help.
