Nosebleeds During Hot Weather In Children Aged 4 Years?
whether the weather conditions are hot right now could also be a trigger for nosebleeds in children aged 4 years?
Hello Mrs. Yeti, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Nosebleeds are very vulnerable to occur in someone who has low immunity, such as children, pregnant women and the elderly. Especially if it happens because it was triggered by extreme weather lately. This can be caused by the hard work of the nasal cavity which is filled with capillaries in blood vessels to adjust the temperature of the air that is inhaled and will be inserted into the lungs. When the outside air is too dry, the capillaries of the blood vessels dilate, with the aim of moisturizing the air before entering the lungs. Because blood vessels are too dilated this causes nosebleeds to appear.
Thick blood that comes out due to hot weather the liquid in the body is too low, this causes blood to be too thick. So do not be surprised if the blood that comes out is thicker than normal blood. We recommend that you continue to provide adequate fluids to your child, especially in this weather, besides that if nosebleeds are very common, it would not hurt if consulted by a pediatrician, so that other causes that might be the basis for frequent nosebleeds occur, such as sinusitis , rhinitis, or a disturbance in the nasal cavity. In handling the first time during a nosebleed, all you need to do is position your child's head to stay upright, but there is no need to look up too much, because this can cause blood to flow backward toward the esophagus and can enter the digestive tract. After that push in the top of the nose (the cartilage) allows for the capillaries to contract and there is no continuous bleeding. When blood does not come out, rest while your child, and place it in a room with humid air such as air-conditioned rooms or cool rooms. Don't forget to give enough fluids by consuming enough water every day. Thus the explanation from us, hopefully helps.
