Is bad breath with slightly bloody nose in a child serious?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... my daughter is almost 4 and has had really bad breath for a few weeks now along with a slightly bloody nose. I believe it to be the dryness in the air. I have tried brushing, mouth wash and started today with a humidifier. I am a little anxious that it may be something more serious. No other symptoms...no runny nose or cold, only the breath and blood in her nose.

Hello,

I don't think the bleeding nose in a child is so important or significant. Most probably she is picking up her nose. The bad breath possible is a sign of mouth infection or adenoids.

I can suggest you take vitamin C to help to improve the health of capillaries. Also, you can meet an ENT doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Olgeta Xhufka, General & Family Physician
