NOSE BLEEDS (EPISTAXIS)

The child with a nose bleed should be made to sit up over a basin, and he should put pressure on the bleeding site by pinching firmly below the bony part at the end of the nose, holding it for five to ten minutes. A cold compress (a cold wet flannel or ice pack) held on the ridge of the nose will help.

WHEN TO CONSULT THE DOCTOR
  • If the bleeding does not stop, or recurs repeatedly, cauterization of the bleeding spot or packing of the nose with a gauze strip may be required.
