Pediatrician 's  Response

Thanks for writing ot health care magic.
Nose bleed could be because of several causes.
It could be because of local trauma because of nose picking or because of bleeding disorder. If it is associated with fever definitely we should evalute the kid.
I think your kids now needs medical attention
Any sick child who is not improving needs medical attention. Particularly so if he has any of the danger signs like lethargy, poor feeding vomiting seizures etc.

Hope this helps
Take care

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Since your child is having fever for last few days and he is not well also ,i advise you to get him evaluated by pediatrician for proper management.
He is having recurrent nose bleeds this also needs to be evaluated.
Cause could be infection/nose picking/local trauma.
I suggest you apply cold compresses over nose and pinch nose for about 4 to 5 minutes in case of bleeding.
Give plenty of fluids.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless,
