Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Conditions experienced by your child, can be conditions that are separated from each other. Among the causes are:
Parotitis or mumps TMJ disorder or TMJ disorder Bacterial infection of the skin Lipoma or growth of fat tissue Swollen lymph nodes Salivary gland stones
As for nosebleeds, there are so many factors that affect it, ranging from air that is too dry and hot, to cancer in the nasal cavity. What we want to say, it is not possible to determine the condition and handling of your child if there is no prior examination. Our advice, you should check your child at a pediatrician or ENT doctor related to his current condition. The doctor will do a history of your child's health so far, do a brief physical examination by looking at lumps and possibly supporting tests such as blood tests if needed. Treatment that your child will receive later depends on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much. If there is a nosebleed, don't ask your child to lift his head, but bow. Squeeze the two nostrils gently to avoid any blood coming out for 5 minutes. Ask him to breathe through his mouth during that time. If after 5 minutes you still bleed, push again for 5 minutes later. If it's still like that for up to 20 minutes, immediately check your child to the nearest hospital emergency room. For bumps, do not hold and squeeze it first, and keep it clean. So, hopefully answering your question.
