Nosebleeds In Children Aged 8 Years When Coughing Colds?
I want to ask, my son is 8 years old at 6 years old, he has a nosebleed when he coughs a cold, only one time bleeding and only a short time. At 7 years old he has several collisions on his head and is now 8 years old. he had a nosebleed again 3 times and he was sick with a cold cough. in addition the tonsils are also large. my question: is there any possibility of another illness that causes my child’s nosebleeds? besides head bumps and cough colds. please explain. for the explanation I thank you.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nosebleeds are actually a condition that is quite common in children. This is because the blood vessels in a child's nose are still thin, so pressure or collisions can easily break it and cause nosebleeds.
Among the things that can trigger a nosebleed in children in addition to collisions are sneezing too hard, throwing nasal mucus too hard, allergies, and infection. You do not need to worry about this nosebleed condition, as long as the nosebleeds stop in a maximum period of 30 minutes, bleeding is not so much, and not accompanied by disturbing symptoms, such as the child looks weak, dizzy, and pale.
If there is a nosebleed, all you need to do is sit your child down and position him slightly downward, then squeeze his nose so that the blood does not come out, and hold for 5 minutes. During that time, ask him to breathe through his mouth. After 5 minutes, release your finger and see if the blood still flows. If still, then push again for 5 minutes and repeat continuously for 30 minutes. If after 30 minutes it still flows, then take it to the nearest hospital emergency room. This condition will improve by itself with age. So, hopefully answering your question.
