My son occassionally has bleeding nose. Is this normal ? Is there a health risk in the long term?

Maybe: Nosebleeds can be caused by so many things, ranging from benign things (nose picking, dry air, etc) to chronic conditions (bleeding/clotting problems) to terrible things like cancers.

Vomiting just a little and bleeding nose! happening hour apart from each other?

Concerning: A little bleed from the nose, or a broken blood vessel in the eye, may be normal after vomiting (high pressure, upside down head). However, I am concerned about your other symptoms of abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea and headaches. Check with the doctor who is prescribing steroid creams to you.

My 2-year-old son slipped, chipped his front tooth, bleeding from nose. What should I do?

My 2-year-old son slipped, chipped his front tooth, bleeding from nose. What should I do?

Depends: If the chip is only into the enamel he should have no problems with it other than possibly being sharp to his soft tissue. If the tooth is broken to the nerve then you would probably notice blood oozing from the tooth, then he would need it checked. Best to have a dentist look at it either way. Nosebleed is possible soft tissue injury. Probably should have that checked if you think it is serious. ...Read more

If it continues or is happening multiple times a day call your doctor. ...Read more

My son is 12 and has had a half dozen nose bleeds in the last week.  He woke up this morning  with his nose bleeding. His nose has never ever bled b4.

Epistaxis: Sometimes epistaxis (nosebleed) is mechanical from picking the nose and creates an open sore that bleeds. Another reason is a cold or allergies can make the turbinates in the nose become easily damaged and can bleed over and over. If the bleeding is coming from one side, most likely a blood vessel that can be cauterized. See an ENT. ...Read more
