    Abstract

    No published data exists to support the belief that nose picking contributes to recurrent idiopathic paediatric epistaxis. If nose picking is implicated then there may be a higher incidence of epistaxis on the side of the dominant hand. The objective of the study was to determine whether nose picking has a significant role in paediatric epistaxis by comparing hand dominance and side of epistaxis.
