My three children will have nose bleed occasionally. But my eldest gal has the most frequent bleed. This happen when she feels dizzy or sometimes on a hot weather. Is this normal? Should i consult a child specialist?

i used to get frequent nose bleeds due to heat when i was a child and at one point my doctor said something about one of my veins there being weak and that was the reason and that he could go in and fix it but it was not an emergency. see what your family doctor says and make sure its not just cuz they are picking their nose too much as this is what causes my son's nose bleeds...keeps digging for gold hehe.

Question, does she get dizzy after the fact? Or the bleeding is due to dizziness?



A home remedy you can try is lining her nostrils with vasiline, to keep it moist. Or if it's too frequent, you have the choice of having her offending nose vessel cauterized (burned) closed. My brother-in-law had the same problem and happened too often for comfort (He was about 10 y/o when he had it done). Definetly consult a physician about your concern and discuss your options.

my youngest son has problems with nose bleeds, so we give him vitamine c and at night we use saliene solution wo help with the moisture. it runs in my family. usually it is because there is not enough moisture and the small vessels have problems. on a hot day you should always take extra vitamine b this helps drastically. i live in the green belt part of the desert and we have the "dry heat" so it is a chore. but these things should help... plus plenty of water.

My son has the same problem. I don't know if it's normal or not - my husband was just asking that same question. I am curious to see what others think!
