Child having ADHD, getting worse. Can angry fits cause nose bleeding? Nose to be bandaged?

I have a 9 yr old son with ADHD , his anger has been getting worse lately and yesterday he had the worst fit of anger ever!!! He was kicking the walls screaming hysterically, his face was bright red, he then got a nose bleed . Can a nose bleed be caused by anger fits and burst blood vessels? or did he need to have banged his nose? He has before head butted things etc so i m not sure and worried in case he has hurt himself. Thanks

Thank you for your query.

Nose bleed can occur even without getting an injury on the nose. I hope your son's blood pressure is normal. If nose bleed persists it is advisable to pinch the nose for 5 minutes by the watch so that bleeding stops. In case bleeding persists then he needs to be shown to a ENT surgeon who shall do nasal packing.

I hope I have responded to your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
