What Causes Nose Bleeds And Blurred Vision In Eye In Kid?

My 8 year old daughter and her family returned to summit county, co (elevation HIGH!) from NY a few weeks ago and she was having pretty bad nose bleeds for a week. Followed by a week of headaches (still happening) and after school today she told me she was seeing spots and blurred vision in 1 eye....is it time to take her to see her pediatrician

Hi,

Nose bleed in children is most commonly caused by mucosal drying and crusting, and need not be worried. This is very common in children with habit of nose pricking.

But here, since it is already 1 week after returning down, and it is associated with headache and blurred vision, we need a basic evaluation. Kindly take him to pediatrician. After examining nose and taking blood pressure, you may be asked for a blood routine test. Meanwhile, avoid nose prick and take paracetamol for headache.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
