9 yr old daughter with some stuff going on.....

Postby madaboutthat » Tue Aug 02, 2005 6:14 pm

My 9yr old within the last week has had 8 bloody noses to the point where when her head is back chokes on blood that is at that point comming out of mouth, itchy back and swollen tonsils with hard white stuff on them (not strep puss pockets). All of these symptoms have happened within the last week and all are simultaneous. What in the world is going on? Any ideas?
Thank you for your time,

Dear worried,
Obviously your child's blood vessels are very fragile to the point that any inflammation (as a result of infection) causes marked swelling and bleeding.
I suggest you treat the infection first, as your doctor has prescribed, and after the inflammation subsides, you could consider and discuss with your doctor the possibility of cauterization.
Best regards,

Dr. Heba Ismail, M.D.
