my 5 year old daughter has frequent nosebleeds with an average interval of once or twice every 2 weeks, when she was a toddler she had occasional nosebleeds prior to a cold, and it became more often starting last year, we live in manila and its generally quite humid, and in 2011 she had a blood work done including cbc and everything came out normal, so her pedia ruled out blood disorder, and prescribed muconase nasal spray to clean the nose, no rubbing, blowing , picking , and bactroban ointment for a week, but she still gets nose bleeds , i noticed that the lining of her nose looks very raw most of the time, and she took montelukast for a couple of months before due to nasal allergies, is the bleeding related to having allergies? please further advise thanks a lot!
Bleeding could be related to allergies. I am not sure if muconase is an inhaled steroid, since I don't prescribe it. If it is, it could help with nasal allergies and therefore may help with bleeding. I would recommend discussing it further with your doctor and then perhaps have an ENT doctor look into the nose from their skilled perspective.
Good luck, Dr. Olson
