Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 28 days ago.

Even if the pressure is unable to stop the bleeding, he should be taken to hospital. Children have low physiological reserve so even small amount of bleeding can cause significant problem.

Meanwhile press the area firmly for 7-10 minutes which usually is able to stop the bleeding.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
