Pediatrician 's  Response

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Does she pick her nose often?
Nose picking is the commonest cause of nasal fresh bleeds.
Ask her not to pick her nose.
Apply neosporin ointment in her nostrils thrice daily for 5 days.
Give her some nasal decongestants daily.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
