  • A cool mist humidifier. It will put the moisture back in the air. You can also use little noses nasal spray or drops.

  • His little nasal passages are dry. Use a nasal spray and run a humidifier in his room at night. It should moisten them enough that it doesn't bleed. Good luck!

  • My children and I use a saline nasal wash by Neil Med. Look for it at a local pharmacy. It really helps with allergy season. It takes getting use to but it HAS REALLY helped.

  • Our Daughter had such bad nose bleeds she had to have surgery but before that, we did a saline spray and took a cotton swab covered in Vasaline and swabbed the inside of her nostrils. It worked quite well.

  • My son had seasonal allergies and when he is outside a lot he would sneeze and get really bad nose bleeds. I started him on a new nutritional product that has worked wonders. message me if you are interested.
