Q.

NOSEBLEEDS

Since I can remember my baby boy suffers from nosebleeds without much of a bump required. He is 15 months old and otherwise a very happy active little boy. Do I need to be concerned about this? He was diagnosed with baby-ashma but I don' t use the medicine. Usually when it gets quite cold he will start to wheeze at bit. Can this contribute to the nosebleeds?

Paediatrician

I am not happy about such a young baby having nose bleeds. Your baby should be seen by a paediatrician. A blood test will be required.
