When to worry about nosebleeds

If you have a child who has had a nosebleed, it can be hard to know what to do. Nosebleeds can look alarming to parents and children alike. But most of the time, they are a minor injury that’s completely harmless and can be easily treated at home.

Nosebleeds are very common in children and usually not serious. Children are more prone to nosebleeds and usually grow out of having them.
