this happen's to my son too , my doctor said that he has allergies and so it's worse in the spring he picks and picks and bleeds so he told me to put vaseline on my finger and put it in his nose and it will stop his bleeding and the weird feeling of something there will make him stop picking and it seems to work. for him he says that it's itchy and he has to stop and the doctor said that he is giving himself scabs and re-opening them by picking and this method keep's it moist and they forget about picking

It could be that her nose is dry and itchy. Try putting a humidifier in her room at night.

thank you so much for your help Ashley, that sounds exactly like what my daughter is going through except she doesn't have allergies. the ear, throat and nose specialist said that she was causing scabs, but that is the best advise I have had on how to stop it, I will definitly try to do that. Thank you again for your help and for everyone who tried to help.

my sister in law is going through this all she does is keep telling him no n saying u know wht happens wen u pick it. because when it bled it kind of shocked him. also just wen he goes to do just gently keep moving his hand away
