Hi, my two year old has nose bleeds quite often. It just happens out of the blue. I have noticed that it started as the summer started, but could it really be the heat, it hasn' t been that hot... Its not a lot of blood, but still he is still so small, is it normal?
This is not normal and certainly is not due to the heat. Please ask your doctor or paediatrician to see your child and to do a full blood count to be sure that her blood count is normal. If the blood test is normal and no other cause is found you should then consult an ENT specialist.
