Nosebleed suddenly in the night.
Hello Doctor, My child had a nosebleed last night from left nostril. Few stains on the bedsheet. She did not complain of any pain or discomfort. She had a similar nosebleed couple of weeks ago during bath. In both cases, bleeding stopped in a few minutes. Can you please suggest if this is common or something concerning? and why this is happening. Let us know what we should be watchful of in future. She currently has no cold or any other symptoms. She is active and doing fine. But this sudden nosebleed is concerning. Please let us know your inputs. Thanks Sandhya
