Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds

McKenzie Pediatrics (Jan 2010)

Nosebleeds (epistaxis) are very common throughout childhood. They are usually caused by dryness of the nasal lining combined with normal rubbing and picking or vigorous nose blowing. Children with nasal allergies are more susceptible to nosebleeds due to chronic irritation of the nasal lining and itchy nose.
