Health Tip: Treating a Nosebleed

Health Tip: Treating a Nosebleed

11/26/12

(HealthDay News) -- Nosebleeds are common during childhood, and don't necessarily indicate danger, or that something is wrong.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these treatment suggestions:

  • Stay calm and avoid panicking; nosebleeds typically aren't serious.
  • Have your child sit or stand with head tilted a bit forward. Do not stuff anything into the nose.
  • Gently pinching the soft part of your child's nose between your thumb and forefinger, hold it firmly for 10 minutes without releasing.
  • After 10 minutes, release the nose to see if bleeding has stopped. If it hasn't, repeat the hold for another 10 minutes.
  • If the bleeding hasn't stopped after 20 minutes, contact your pediatrician.
