Hello Mrs. Frisca! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Nosebleeds or bleeding from the nose are common in children. Nosebleeds in children are usually mild and can be treated easily. Blood vessels close to the nostril area are very vulnerable and can be damaged easily. Nosebleeds in children usually occur when the child has a nose nose, has a runny nose, sneezes too hard, or collapses. Since all laboratory tests for your child are normal, these incidents should be avoided.
Try to ask your child to reduce nose picking and not too deep when picking your nose because it can injure the nose. Always trim your child's nails so they don't cause injury. Colds and sneezing can very easily occur in children who experience allergic rhinitis or allergic reactions to the nose. Allergies are usually triggered by house dust mites. This situation is often referred to as dust allergy. To avoid this, limit the use of furniture in the house, especially in children's rooms. Sweep and mop the house every day. Do not use rugs or woolen blankets in the house. Children's sheets and pillowcases should be washed every 1-2 weeks using warm water over 60 ° C. Every morning, the doors and windows of the children's room must be opened to keep the air circulating. Also reduce dolls in the house. Dolls should be washed regularly with warm water and stored in plastic. Avoid exposure to cigarette smoke or other combustion fumes. If someone smokes at your mother's house, she cannot smoke at home, including on the terrace. Your child can eat as usual. Reducing cold drinks, alcoholic or flavoring foods, and chocolate may help. Mothers can consult further with a pediatrician or ENT doctor.
If your child has a nosebleed, here's what you can do as first aid.
Keep child sitting or leaning slightly upright. Squeeze the nose using the thumb and index finger until the nostrils are completely closed (the child breathes using the mouth). Cold compress on the area around the nose. Do not put any tissue or leaves in the nose as this can cause infection. If it has stopped, do not pick your nose or try to remove the remaining blood. If the child looks very weak or the blood doesn't stop after having squeezed the nose for 20 minutes, take the child to the nearest emergency room.
So much information from me. May be useful.
