My 5 years old son is having frequent nose bleed for last one month. Though the amount of blood is quite less but the onset can be as frequent as twice a day. We consulted ENT doctor about 15 days back and he suggested its anterior and suggested paraffin drops along with Saline. This reduced the frequency but not entirely cured the problem. For last few days the frequency has again increased. We stay in Pune and the weather has been dry but changing now. He is taking Oleptal DT 150 twice a day for childhood epilepsy. Please suggest if we should revisit a specialist.

Children has tendency of nose picking. So nose bleeding (epistaxis) is very common in this age group. Inn summer there is dry air which causes dryness in nose which also lead to nose bleed. I suggest you that you apply small amount of ointment neomycin in anterior part of nose along with saline nasal drops 3 drops three times a day for minimum 5 days. And also encourage child to avoid nose pricking.
