Health Tip: Why the Frequent Nosebleeds?07/14/11
(HealthDay News) -- Some children are more prone than others to
frequent nosebleeds. While most of the time they are neither
unusual or dangerous, they can be scary.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says common triggers of
frequent nosebleeds include:
- Having allergies or the common cold.
- Receiving a blow to the nose, picking the nose, or blowing the
nose with excessive force.
- Exposure to dry air or irritating fumes.
- Having abnormalities within the nasal structure, or abnormal
tissue growth inside the nose.
- Having a chronic illness requiring medication that dries out
the inside of the nose.
