Nose Problems


Nosebleed is caused by damage to blood vessels located close to the surface of the skin. If your baby's nose begins to bleed, keep her in an upright position or leaning forward slightly. Keep her head down. Never keep it upright or tip it back. This could cause the blood to flow back into the stomach and make her vomit. Calm her down and try to stop her from crying as that increases the blood flow. Pinch her nostrils between your thumb and index finger for 5 to 10 minutes. This will make her breathe from the mouth. If she continues to bleed, pack the bleeding nostril with absorbent cotton and apply a cold compress.

Catarrh and runny nose

Catarrh that continues for more than four or five days or a chronic runny nose are not normal. It is a sign that your child may have a chronic infection of the nose and throat or chronic sinusitis. You will have to consult your doctor, as the treatment will require the use of antibiotics.
