Nosebleeds are not usually an indication of anything bad. They are fairly common, especially in younger children, and can be treated easily at home. But when you do have a nosebleed, do not delay calling your doctor. Non-emergency information: *Nosebleeds are usually caused by congestion, which is why children get them more often. A simple cold or sinus infection may be the cause. So visit a doctor right away for treatment. If you have recurring nosebleeds, see your doctor.
