About Nasal Bleeding Epistaxis Treatment

Most nosebleeds are slight and do not last long. Nosebleeds are common in children, but can also happen after an injury or cold. A nosebleed occurs when one of the blood vessels in the lining of the nose bursts.

Nosebleeds can be caused by infection, injury, allergic reaction, nose picking, or an object being pushed into the nose. Another name for nosebleed is epistaxis.

If your child has continuous nosebleeds, see your doctor as the cause needs to be examined and treatment is to be done.

For example, if the cause is an ongoing infection, your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic ointment or medicine. Very occasionally, a child loses so much blood that this causes other health problems, such as anemia.

Always remember that if the bleeding is profuse and persists, you should contact the epistaxis treatment emergency department. You should get immediate medical attention if your nosebleed lasts longer than 20 minutes, or if it occurs after a head injury or accident that may have broken your nose.

While most nosebleeds settle down effortlessly with simple first-aid measures, some can be serious. Severe nosebleeds, especially those coming from the area at the back of the nose, may require nasal packing with gauze or a special type of inflatable latex balloon in the nose to stop bleeding.

Alternatively, nasal cautery (where the bleeding vessel in the nose is sealed by applying a special solution or an electrical or heating device) may be performed.
