Nose Bleeds

Ryken gets a lot of bloody noses lately. Maybe 3-4x a week. They just started 5-6 weeks ago. It's totally random though, like he's had one in bed before, while taking a bath, outside and inside. Today we were at a peach festival and his nose just started bleeding while riding in the wagon. We know it's not from picking his nose because we've seen them just start out of nowhere. We were at a baseball game the other day and he got one and someone said that it might be from the heat, but he gets them inside equally as much. It's also super humid, so I don't think his nose is dry. I dunno, I need to schedule Sully's 12 month appt so I guess I'll bring it up then.

hummm ya I would get it checked out at the doc's office for sure.

But I used to get a lot of nose bleed when I was younger and the doc said it was because it was dry (usually had them in winter)....

KUP.

DH used to get loads of nose bleeds when he was little/young. Don't know why. He had loads of treatments to stop it then but he's just grown out of it. He's not had one for years now. When I first met him he'd have one nearly every week.

I'd defiantly bring it up with the doc though. It could be anything causing them

and OMG how is Sully nearly 1!!!!!???

We're seeing his endo tomorrow, so I'm going to ask him then. He hasn't had one in about 2 weeks though, so I'm kind of thinking it's because of the heat. We haven't been outside much in the past 2 weeks because it's been over 105 every day. It's supposed to be 113 today! I will KUP after his appt.
