Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad that you came to us with your concern regarding your daughter's nose bleeds.

Bleeding usually occurs from only one nostril. If the bleeding is heavy enough, the blood can fill up the nostril on the affected side and overflow within the nasopharynx (the area inside the nose where the two nostrils merge), spilling into the other nostril to cause bleeding from both sides. Blood can also drip back into the throat or down into the stomach, causing a person to spit or even vomit blood.

Most common causes of a nosebleed include trauma to the nose triggers a nosebleed. Trauma to the outside of the nose, such as a blow to the face, or trauma inside the nose, such as nose picking or repeated irritation from a cold, can cause a nosebleed.

I am concerned that your daughter has frequent heavy nosebleeds. You must consult your primary care physician as soon as possible.
