Recently there was a 10 days old baby suffering from severe clotting disorder. The child had been bleeding from the navel for 2 days. Nothing helped. I was called in to treat the little baby.
We used a 1 x 3 inch ChitoFlex dressing; put it on the bleeding navel for 5 minutes and the bleeding stopped. There has been no re-bleed from the navel.
