My soon to be 3 yr old is having major nose bleeds. He saw a specialist not to long ago and he said to use vasoline after I clean it with peroxide that didn't work so on Sunday he had 1 nose bleed then Monday he had 3 and they were very bad and tuesday he had one and he doesn't do anything to get them has anyone else dealt with this I need advice on what to do because I called the doctor Tuesday and the lady on the phone (who wasn't a nurse). Said to use vasoline on the inside of his nose and to use a cool mist vaporizer.

Update
Hi ladies I'm the one that asked about the nose bleeds. I just wanted to let everyone know we went back to the specialist and Monday morning we go to the hospital to have his nose cauterized. He will be put under lite anesthesia. I'm a little worried since he's only 2. I know he will be fine but as a mom it's my job to worry.


Update 8/27
He had it done today and did great. I'm so super excited that he did so well. He did have to have A breathing treatment which wasn't expected but he's getting a cold. All the nurses and doctors did great.

Oh no :-( did he have to go to kosair? poor lil guy. I would try neosporin instead of vaseline, put it in on a q-tip. Hope he's better now!
