Nosebleeds, also known as epistaxis, in children can be a scary occurrence but are usually not dangerous and do not require medical attention. However, if nosebleeds are chronic or you cannot stop the bleeding, you should seek medical attention.
If your child's nosebleeds are cause for concern, the pediatricians at Jefferson will provide your child with compassionate care and work hard to understand the underlying causes to recommend the best treatment plan.
Thomas Jefferson University, the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and the Medical Center of Delaware are affiliated in a program that provides a regional system of pediatric care. Research and many clinical services are provided cooperatively in the system.
