Q.

1 yo fell on nose

Dear Prof

My 1 yo son stepped on his hand with his knee while crawling tonight, and subsequently fell on his nose on our tile floor. Hsi nose bled a bit, but no discoloring of the skin on the nose bridge or anything. Does this need to be checked out? or is there something we need to watch?

many thanks as always.

Thank you.Your baby son's nose did bleed a bit after his fall, but he does not appear to have caused any actual damage to his nose.If his nose starts to bleed again,or if he appears to have any pain then it would be best to ask your doctor to see him.
