ENT Specialist 's  Response

Its definitely a matter of concern, unprovocative bleeding should always be checked for blood disorders. Wait and watch is the best policy in this case. If it worsens, you need to consult your physician and an ENT specialist. Try using saline nasal drops, hope the child will recover. Any more doubts you are welcome.
