Nose Bleeds

First Aid Tips

  • Do not put the child's head back. Have the child sit up and lean forward to avoid swallowing blood.
  • Hold firm pressure below the bony part of the nose for 10 minutes. Repeat if necessary.
  • Do not allow the child to blow his nose for at least 20 minutes.
  • Call the child's doctor if:
    • The bleeding continues for more than 15 minutes
    • Nosebleeds occur regularly
    • Bleeding occurs from other parts of the child's body
    • The child has bruises not caused by injuries
