Suggest treatment for nose bleeding

My 12 year old son has frequent nose bleeds. A few minutes ago his nose bled more than usual with bright red blood covering both of his hands and dripping all over the place. He s been taking 3 Transfer Factor Chewables daily for the past 2 months. What more can be done to reduce or remedy his nose bleeds? He is slender, about 4 8 , and about 80lbs. We are of Pacific Islander descent and live in the humid tropics.His older sister also has frequent nose bleeds.

Hello,

It may be due to dry nose.

During bleeding pinch your nose for 10 minutes.

Never lie down.

Along with that you can use nasal saline drops locally.

Use humidifier.

Avoid hot and humid environment.

Do regular blood pressure monitoring

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

Regards,
