Thank you for your query.

Nose bleeds are common in children specially in the winter after nose pricks. It is usually self limiting as in your daughter's case. It is not a concerning problem.

If you could check her blood pressure then it would be fantastic.
Please come back to me if
1) She is hypertensive
2) Has bleeding from other sites and skin
3) Has excessive bleeding during her periods.
4) Develops other symptoms.

Ask her not to finger her nose. Give her some paracetamol and put her to rest.

Hope this answers your query. You are free to ask any question related to this.

Wishing your child a speedy recovery...

Sometimes I get the taste of blood in the back of my throat and on a more rare occasion I ll burp and taste a bit of blood or it may be iron. I had nosebleeds a lot when I was young but not so much now. Sometimes I get the taste from strenuous activity, sometimes from nothing at all. What could be the problem?

Yes I have been taking Aleve for joint pain and it was very effective but recently I have been getting nose bleeds. I am thinking this has to do with the Aleve so I have stopped taking it. Does MegaRed joint care have anything in it that will also cause my nose to bleed?
