Nose Bleed

How to curb the flow

(HealthDayNews) -- Is your kid a nose-bleeder?

The American Academy of Pediatrics has this advice for curbing the flow:

  • Keep the child in a sitting position with his head tilted slightly forward.
  • Squeeze both nostrils between your thumb and index finger for 10 minutes.
  • This should stop the bleeding. If it doesn't, call your doctor or go to the emergency room.
