Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Hi. I'm Dr. Clark and I'm happy that you have asked me to assist you with your child and hope that you can benefit from my many years of helping parents like you.
Thank you very much! :)
I can tell you for certain that the nosebleeds have nothing to do with his head injury!
oh phew! I can breathe again! That makes me feel better!
You are correct in that toddlers have lots of nosebleeds and not just from picking it but because the blood vessels inside the nose are very prominent and bleed easily.
are there still concerns after four days that I should watch for?
No since without a loss of consciousness when it happened and the way he's acted since then there is little to no chance that he has any kind of brain or skull injury.
At this point you don't need to worry about it as he is too far out from what sounds like a mild blow to his head to be concerned about any damage.
okay, thank you so much! This has helped tremendously!
You are quite welcome and have a great evening.
Please let me know if you have any questions later.
thank you, XXXXX XXXXX
