The first thing you need to do is to stop using Iliadin as rebound rhinitis and nose bleeds can occur with prolonged use of this product. Use only Salex nose drops if your daughter has a blocked nose. In the meantime she needs to be seen by an ENT specialist as nose bleeds are rare in this age group and she needs to be checked to see that she does not have any bleeding blood vessels. She should also have a full blood count done to be sure that her bllod cells are normal.
