Nosebleeds are very common during childhood, especially for children less than 10 years of age. The vast majority of nosebleeds are mild and resolve on their own or with a little help. In this episode we discuss what parents can do to help stop the bleeding, and also what to do if the nosebleed doesn't stop and when to seek medical attention. What about children who have lots of nosebleeds? We talk about some preventative measures to consider, and also when to think about seeing a specialist.
