My son, almost 3 years old, gets extreme nose bleeding. Do I need to see a doctor? How can I stop the bleeding quickly?

In brief: Nose bleeds

Prechoolers often have nose bleeds due to dry air and/or picking their nose.
Applying vasoline-petroleum jelly and salt water drops to nares can help prevent nose bleed. Stop a nose bleed by pinching the nares together. You should have your child's nose checked by a doctor if the nose bleeds are frequent.
