Nose Bleed

I panicked the first time I experience nose bleeding with my kids.  Thankfully, the doctor assured me that nose bleeds are rarely cause for alarm and common in kids between the ages of 3 to 10 if they do not have any underlying diseases or other health problems that might cause the nose to bleed. Nosebleeds often stop on their own and can be readily attended to safely at home.

Yesterday, while my twelve year old son, Yahmir was reviewing for his quarterly exams, he alarmingly told me that his nose is bleeding. I was busy preparing for his snack at that time, I immediately pinched the soft part of his nose firmly and instructed him to lean forward slightly with his head tilted forward. I repeated the procedure until the bleeding stopped.

His allergic rhinitis has been the culprit of his bleeding nose, he kept on sneezing and blows hard because he is annoyed of the mucus coming in and out of his nose. After I cleaned his nose, I told him to rest for a while and told him not to blow too hard and as much as possible avoid rubbing his nose forcefully because tiny blood vessels inside our nose get irritated and can get break open and bleed.

Aside from allergy other common causes of nose bleeding are self-induced by nose picking, rubbing or blowing it too hard or having their nose knocked while playing. It is very important to trim fingernails regularly.

Another thing before I forget, do not let your kid to get to blow their nose when they are experiencing a nose bleed. If the bleeding persist after applying the home remedy, get medical help immediately.


  1. my kids have never had a nose bleed Ms.Joy..but I have witnessed with my office mate when I was still working in a bank..it was scary..you are right we must always observe..if it stops good..but if it becomes frequent..it would be best to go for  a check-up..my office mate has leukemia that's why she was having nose bleed a high fever po..

    magandang umaga po ms.Joy..love lots po *hugs*

  2. Eek! I do not want to experience that with my little girl. Yung mga random scrapes sa balat madali tanggapin pero yung blood coming from inside their body nakakatakot!

  3. I hope he's okay now Mommy Joy. I had my bouts with nose bleeding in the past but the bleeding was due to my chronic sinusitis. After I was put into mega-doses of anti-biotics, the bleeding stopped. However, the extreme heat in this part of the world is making my sinusitis act up again. 

    Help him not to aggravate the condition by avoiding picking the nose or blowing too hard.
