  • BLED...her nose bled. Sorry that really bothered me that you said "bleeded". If you are worried about her nose bleeding call her pediatrician. It could just be that the air in your house is dry. I am a frequent victim of nose bleeds and most of it has to do with dry air.

  • If it's just a little blood then I shouldn't worry.Both my daughters had problems with nose bleeding,especially in the summer months or when traveling by air.It could be she scratched herself a little with her fingers or maybe a change in temperature.I usually used a mild nasal cleansing spray to see whether her nose was clogged and to see if the bleeding continued.It never did after the first times.I f it bleeds too much or more than a couple of times ask your doctor.

  • If its that hot hwer nose may be dry and when they are dry like that the slightest bump can irritate them and make them bleed. My DH has issues with that,. Try a spray of saline here and there :)
