Thank you for your query.

Repeated nose bleeds need to be examined and investigated. In children the most common cause of nose bleed is picking of the nostrils. Application of a bland ointment on the nasal septum should give some relief.

The tickling sensation of the toes need a complete neurlogical work up for which I suggest that you consult your doctor.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.

Thanks for your query.
Nose bleeding is common in children and commonest causes are.
-nose picking
-foreign body

Apply ice pack over his nose when there is bleeding and apply presurre over nose for 5 minutes.
Use paraffin drops so as to prevent dryness and local application of mild steroid is needed.
Regarding toes tickling it needs to be examined.anemia needs to be ruled out.
I suggest you to get your child evaluated by pediatrician for recurrent nose bleeds .
Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
