Childhood Nose Bleeds

Minor nosebleeds in childhood are common – these largely correspond to an age of maximum ‘nose reactivity’ due to irritating conditions such as allergic rhinitis, combined with nose-picking by little fingers (a habit that is not exclusive to children, of course!). General practitioners are expert at identifying and managing an assortment of paediatric nosebleeds, but may occasionally request specialist review where simple measures fail. (For young lovers of all things icky, Evolve ENTs may occasionally use our bendy spy telescope to show your child their nose on the television screen as part of their evaluation!). Rarely, a blood test or a small procedure – either in the clinic, or in the operating theatre – may be required to stop the problem.
