If your child has regular nosebleeds, there are precautions you can take to help prevent the problem.

The University of Virginia Health System offers these suggestions:
Health Tips

* The air in your home may be dry. Use a cool mist humidifier, especially at night, in your child’s room.

* Don’t allow your child to blow the nose too hard, or pick the nose.

* Apply a small amount of petroleum jelly to the inside of the child’s nose several times a day, and always at bedtime.

* Apply saline drops or nasal spray to the nose, as recommended by your paediatrician.

* If your child has allergies, seek regular treatment from the child’s doctor.
