Nosebleeds In Children Aged 9 Years?
Sorry I want to ask about my child. He is 9 years old. During the past week he had been exposed to fever and cough and had been seeing a doctor. Now her body temperature is normal, but for two days she had nosebleeds up to 3 times a day. Is that a serious problem or just normal? The problem is usually he does not get a nosebleed despite heat illness. And do doctors need treatment? Then what should we do if we don’t have to see a doctor? thanks.
Hello Alfa, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Nosebleeds can be caused by many possibilities, here are a few of them:
Trauma or injury to the nose (eg bumping nose) The habit of picking the nose Nasal members are too harsh The air is too cold or too dry There are disorders of the blood vessels in the nose Impaired blood clots due to various causes If your child is also experiencing a cold together with a cough the possibility of nosebleeds is caused by a child who blows too often on his nose or his nose is too hard. You can also ask your child if there is a history of picking your nose before nosebleeds. Also pay attention to the temperature and humidity of your home, if you use a lot of air conditioners, for example, humidity can go down and the nasal mucosa becomes drier so it can bleed easily.
Basically if the nosebleeds occur only slightly and can be self-administered, there is nothing you need to worry about. Here are some things you can do:
Position the head in an upright position or slightly bent down, DO NOT look up / look up Press the base of the nose with the index finger and thumb for approximately 10-15 minutes Compress the base of the nose with ice cubes If the bleeding does not stop within 20 minutes, immediately bring the child to see a doctor. Some things you can do to prevent nosebleeds:
Avoid blushing the nose too often or too hard Put an air humidifier (humidifier) at home / in a child's room Avoid nosing at the nose, especially after a nosebleed occurs
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
