Brief Answer:
There is no cause for concern

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcaremagic
Greetings of the day
Dear Ms

Nasal bleeding is quite common in toddlers after fall as is swelling. The bump over the forehead is haematoma (collection of clotted blood ). If the following criteria are fulfilled there is no cause for concern

1. No deformity of nose
2. Absence of repeated vomiting
3. Baby is cheerful

Do not worry she is fine .

I would suggest you the following
1. Local application of ice
2. Analgesic like Ibuprofen

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care

Common I can understand but the fact that it was 7 steps in total she fell down, I believe the last 2 were skipped entirely and landed face first on the hardwood and the only thing she really hit that was noticeable was her nose/forehead and the nose swelling was instant. Should I still assume all is well? Or is there anything specific sign wise that I should look for if something were to be wrong? I'm really just concerned about her nose because she did go back to normal with playing on things and acting like herself

I have had dull headaches now for several weeks. And sometimes during the day my head feels heavy or cloudy. Sore throat many mornings. Occasionally when I blow my nose in the morning there is a bit of blood. Tonight in the middle of the night I had a nose bleed that would not stop. Of course it did stop, but after about 15 minutes. First time I have ever had a nosebleed really of any kind.

For the last 2 days I ve been having nosebleeds about 3 each day. I get them to stop after a few minutes by using cold kleenexs. I m taking mg plendil each morning for blood pressure & 10 mg crestor each nite for cholesterol . I ve rarely had nosebleeds in the past. I m 67 years old. I m also a smoker. What can I do to stop having these nosebleeds?

I am concerned about my 3 year old granddaughter s nosebleeds. She has had 3 in the 6 weeks that I ve been visiting. There is a lot of blood flow and sometimes some clots. This has been going on for about a year. She seems healthy otherwise and her doctor says this is common in children..Should I be worried?
