Nose bleeds is a common childhood problem. It occurs due to the rich blood supply of the front part of the septum of the nose, coupled with the fact that children suffers from a lot of upper airway infections and tend to fiddle with their noses a lot. This is seldom something to be worried about. Treatment would initially be a antibacterial nose ointment. Cauterization under local anaesthetic of blood vessels can be attempted if the bleeding is too frequent. This is however difficult in a 3 year old
