Confusing post: Nosebleeds in a 6 yo usually represent simple leaking from the sensitive capillaries in the nasal membrane. The membranes are sensitive to dry air, rubbing or picking. They rarely represent anything else & normal CBC confirms it. Flu doesn't cause them. If she's had her flu shot , avoids sick people & washes her hands properly she has the best chance to stay well.
