Why Does My Child Get Nosebleeds?
My daughter gets frequent nosebleeds. Any idea what's causing this or how to make them stop for good?
A nosebleed once in a while is common, and can happen in kids for many reasons (including having a dry nose or nosepicking).
To help prevent nosebleeds:
However, if your daughter has frequent, heavy, or hard-to-stop nosebleeds, call your doctor. Having a lot of nosebleeds sometimes can be a sign of a problem, such as a bleeding disorder. Even if your child only has occasional nosebleeds but also bruises easily or bleeds easily from other areas, like the gums, let the doctor know.
