When nose bleeding happens, gently pinch the soft part of the nose (just below
the bony ridge) with a tissue or a clean washcloth. Keep pressure on the nose
for about 10 minutes; if you stop too soon, bleeding may start again. In case,
it does not stop after 15 to 20 minutes, immediately see the doctor. Use nasal
drops as per advice and stay careful. Discourage nose-blowing, picking, or
rubbing, and any rough play. You can be observant about your child's eating
habits or seasonal changes which might be the reason for nose bleeding. If you
see any pattern, discuss it with your doctor and take proper measures. Read the

When your child suddenly has blood running down from their nose, it can be startling. While nosebleeds in children seem dramatic, they’re not usually serious.
