Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds - We always see an increase in the number of student nosebleeds at this time of year. The air is very dry & that promotes the nasal membranes to bleed easily.  Consider using a humidifier in your home periodically to make sure your house has enough humidity to help prevent this from happening. Also, if your student has chronic bloody noses you can apply Vaseline up each nostril with a Q-tip at night prior to bedtime to provide more moisture to that area & to help to prevent further problems.
