Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Nose bleed in children could be because of several causes.

Most common among them is nose picking. Just observe your kid for nose picking.

It could also be because of trauma or hypertension or local causes or bleeding disorders.

A complete physical examination is required to arrive at a diagnosis.

Request you to consult your doctor for the needful and further investigations.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
