Child having fever, bleeding from nose. On medicines. Matter of concern?

Hi! My 3 year old son started a fever yesterday and looks like coming down with a flu ( cough and colds). This morning when he woke up he had a bloody nose , actually that woke him up. About this afternoon when after his nap, he had another one and around 6 pm when he sneezed he had another one. He has a fever of 101. Been giving him meds for fever (children safe). Is there anything I should worry about? We will see his pedia tomorrow.

Hello I have gone through your complaints.
Nose is a very soft area which is having more blood supply. It is a simple mucosal injury.
Even mild injury or stress will cause bleeding through nose.
Actually there is no need to worry ,if your child doesn't have any other bleeding manifestations.
Just don't expose your child to cold climate and don't make him to sneeze a lot .
Don't squeeze the nose to extract the secretions.
You can wait and watch.
Thank you. Good day.

Thanks for your query.
Your child is having cough and cold ans sometimes nose bleed also occurs due to dryness in nasal mucosa. Nose picking also leads to bleeding.
Relax,do not worry,.
in case he bleed again apply pressure over his nostrils for 5 minutes,
apply cold compresses over nose.
use paraffin drops,
he should not blow his nose too hard.
Continue with paracetamol till fever subsides.
Give plenty of fluids.
Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
