Nosebleeds or bleeding from the nostrils often make parents panic when stopping blood loss. Typically, the child will be asked tilting the head when a nosebleed, but this is precisely the wrong action. Tilting the head or look up the position can actually make the blood into the body.

Log into lungs can cough, choke, if entered into the stomach can be nausea, vomiting child so, "said the specialist Ear Nose Throat (ENT) Main Rusdian Roeslani in Jakarta, Wednesday (03/12/2014).
