When I was a child I used to get frequent nose bleeds. I was told that it was due to the lining in the nasal passages getting dry and cracking. I still on occasion have nose bleeds, but more often than not, especially during the winter months, my nasal passages STAY dry and I allways get blood when I blow my nose. If this is the case, swab the interior of her nose with a dab of petroleum jelly to keep it moisturized. Also, if possible let her sleep under a humidifier so that moisture is kept in her room especially if you have dry heat during the winter months. This will help a lot....at least it does for me. Good Luck!
My 5 Year Old Daughter Have Constant Bad Nose Bleeds W/o Injuring Herself Or Messing With Her Nose It Just Start To Bleed And Sometime Gosh The Hospital Said Its The Change Of Weather It Bleeds Almost Every Day?
I suffered from this as a child. The doctors all told me that it was due to my nose drying out. I tried the petroleum jelly and it made my nose feel stopped up. When I was 19 I ended up going to a ENT doctor the day after I had a nose bleed. He caterized a small blood vessel inside my nose that he said was probably the cause. I have not had a nose bleed in over 10 years!
My advise to you is to get your little girl to Mayo's or similiar hospital. This is a more serious problem than dry heat, humidifiers, etc. My daughter, now 55, suffered since age 9. SIX months ago finally had surgery needed all these years. Cauterizations did not help. I feel guilty for letting her suffer because I listened to doctors "heat" "dryness" etc. Excuses for too many years. Before this surgery she was dangerously anemic. Please take this seriously.

Is the heat very high where you are at ??? My niece suffered for years with nose bleeds as a child and it was all do to the heat in the house was drying up her nose and causing them. Hope this helps.
Humidifier is very helpful because when your nose becomes dry it gets irritated so my advise when she goes to bed run the humidifier
My 9 year old daughter has had nose bleeds since age 2. She finally had the vessels in her nose cauterized and it helped for a while. However, at the age of 7 she began having very bad nose bleeds again. I was told by a friend that her mother had just went to have test done and there was something with her heart? Don't know but I have just scheduled my daughter another appointment with her doctor to make sure we do further test and try to figure out what is going on. I thank you all for your advise and until her appointment I will try the humidifer and petroleum. Again, thanks and I will update soon.
I have always been told that to place something cold at the back of the neck to stop nose bleeding.
I have a disease called Von Willebrand's Disease (vWD). It's a lesser form of hemophilia, but, it causes all the lining on your G-track (nose, mouth, and if you're a woman, genital) to bleed due to thinned blood and no clotting. Weather/temperature changes, stress, and illness all cause the bleeding to start/stop. Look into this if you haven't solved this already.
