My son has been getting bloody noses quite a bit lately. It's not from picking... just dryness?? Any suggestions?

  • My son (2 years) had the same issue. His doctor said to keep it moist with saline spray as well as to put a little bit of Triple antibotic ointment just inside the nose before he goes to sleep.

  • My oldest had this problem. The only thing that helped was vaseline on a q-tip and swap inside the nostril. Nothing else seemed to help. I did this every morning and every afternoon.

  • As a kid I had nosebleeds all the time in the summer. Something to do with heat. I suggest exploring if that maybe the issue as well.

  • My oldest son has nose bleeds in the winters and he was told to use it every day during the worst of the dry winters.
