Nosebleed, also known as epistaxis, is the bleeding from the nose which is a very common occurrence in children.
Nosebleeds are usually caused by dryness of the nasal lining, together with rubbing and picking of the nose that is blocked or itchy. Blowing the nose vigorously can also cause bleeding. All these actions are increased in children with nasal allergies.
You can follow these steps to help your child to stop his or her nosebleed at home:
Lean forward and spit out any blood
Sit your child upright in a comfortable position and lean forward so that he or she does not swallow the blood. Prepare a basin for your child to spit out any blood that has dripped from the nose into his or her mouth. Swallowed blood irritates the stomach and may cause your child to vomit it out. Do not be alarmed if it happens.
Pinch the soft part of the nose
pinch the soft part of the nose, just above the nostrils, for 10 minutes. The
nostrils should be closed firmly. Do not release the pressure to check for
bleeding until the 10 minutes is up. During this time, your child will have to
breathe through his or her mouth.
If bleeding continues, see a doctor
the bleeding persists, please see your doctor. Continue applying pressure to
the soft part of the nose in the meantime.
