Causes of Nosebleeds and What to Do When They Happen

Nosebleeds can be distressing for parents but are easily managed. Dr. Jamie Kondis, Pediatrician at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, explains the common causes of nosebleeds and what to do when they happen. Most nosebleeds stop after 10 minutes of pinching your nose while leaning forward, but there are certain signs that may lead you to seek ER attention. Some medical conditions can be associated with worse or more frequent nosebleeds. For any specific concerns, reach out to your child’s pediatrician.
