Q: Good morning Doc. Sorry for disturbing you this early morning. Doc, my two year old son woke up this morning, bleeding from his nose this morning with blood all over the bed sheet, though I will be taking him to the hospital later. But you see Doc, this country where we live, they behave somehow. They might just give him Paracetamol and antibiotic without running any test on him and this is the second time it’s happening to him. Please, please Doc, I really need your advice.
A: A nose bleed is called epistaxis and can happen from one or both nostrils. It can be heavy or light and last for a few seconds or a couple of minutes. It can be very frightening. I’m sure you were spooked this morning. However, thankfully, they are not usually a sign of very serious conditions.
