Frequently Asked Questions

When should a person worry about a nosebleed?

You should only be concerned if the nosebleeds are recurring, if you are on special blood thinning medications, or if the nosebleed was caused by trauma and you believe the nose has been broken. If the nosebleed doesn’t fit any of these criteria, then you have nothing to worry about, as long as you have enough detergent and cold water to clean the blood off your clothes.

When to worry about a nosebleed?

You should get medical care immediately if:

  • You’re injured or go through something traumatic, like a car accident.
  • There’s more blood than you expect for a nosebleed.
  • It affects your ability to breathe.
  • The bleeding lasts longer than 20 minutes, even when you apply pressure.

How to start a nosebleed?

You can try:

  • using a nasal saline mist sprayed into the nostrils a few times a day
  • rubbing an emollient like Vaseline or lanolin just inside the nostrils on a cotton bud or finger
  • using a vaporizer in your child’s bedroom to add moisture to the air
  • keeping your child’s nails trimmed to reduce scratches and irritations from nose picking

What are nosebleeds a sign of?

This may be a sign of a posterior nosebleed, which is more serious. Injuries that might cause a nosebleed include a fall, a car accident, or a punch in the face. Nosebleeds that occur after an injury may indicate a broken nose, skull fracture, or internal bleeding.
