Nose bleeds in kids can be caused by a number of things. The number one cause by far is nose picking. Dry skin inside the nose can also be a problem (a little vaseline can help). Friable blood vessels in nose can be cause (need to see ENT to get treatment). Lastly, low platelets can cause pretty severe nose bleeds (>20 minutes). Treatment depends on cause of low platelets.

Are nosebleeds common in children. if they happen frequently, should I be worried. what is the way to prevent them.

Nosebleeds

Head-nose
Are frequent in children, especially when exposed to hot and dry air. Saline drops to the nose and vasoline around the outside of the nose can help. Also children are prone to picking their noses which can also start a nosebleed. If the nosebleeds are frequent, have your child examined by their pediatrician.

Nosebleeds

Saline_nasal_spray
Some of the causes of frequent nosebleeds include constant exposure to dry air, consistent use of nasal sprays (for allergies or congestion), recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, and snorting drugs, such as cocaine. Sometimes, recurrent nosebleeds can indicate an underlying bleeding disorder.

what causes nosebleeds?

Superficial vessels

Head-nose
95% of nosebleeds occur from the front of the nose. Blood vessels can be superficial in that area and easily traumatized. This then can lead to bleeding. Bleeding is usually worse when noses are irritated either from an upper respiratory tract infection or allergies. Some people have bleeding disorders which can also make bleeding worse. If nosebleeds are a problem for you you should see an ENT doctor for an evaluation.

Dr. Bernstein Joel answered:

what causes nosebleeds?

Many possibilities

Epistaxis
The most common source of a nose bleed is from the front/ bottom part of the nasal septum. This is a vascular area and some people have prominent blood vessels in this area. The blood vessels may break with a nose blow, dryness, or picking at this area. But there are other more serious causes such as hypertension, growth and even a malignancy. See an ENT doctor.

Dr. Dan E. Fisher answered:

Can anemia cause nosebleeds?

No

Bloody_nose
Anemia itself does not cause nosebleeds. Anemia is a sign of an underlying disease. The underlying disease which produces anemia may also cause disorders of clotting or of platelet number or activation. Those processes may indeed cause bleeding including nosebleeds.

Does the flu cause nosebleeds?

No

Bloody_nose
But a cold virus could. If you have nasal congestion as part of this, it may not be a flu virus. People get nosebleeds this time of year from allergies, so it's not impossible to have a nosebleed and havethe flu, I just don't think the two are really connected.

Does Xarelto causes nosebleeds?

It can...

Bloody_nose
Any anticoagulation medication can cause nosebleeds. If these are minor and infrequent, it may not be worht the risk of stopping the medication, depending on why it was started. Occassionally nosebleeds may be severe enough to warrant stopping this type of medication, but this is rare. Talk to your doctor about this.
