As you described,the bleeding started once your son woke up from sleep.

This may be due to many facotrs-


tongue thrusting habit

bleeding disorders

associated tooth infection which has spread into periapical area


I would suggest you to visit a physician as well as dentist for direct clinical examination.

Please do not take antibiotics without medical supervision.

Treatment can be planned based on the diagnosis.

Dentist Dr. Farah Hussain's  Response
hi and welcome,

Infection in the tooth can be treated by root canal procedure and penicilin administration will only subside the pain and inflammation temporarily.

Upper infected molar and premolar teeth may spread infection to sinus ,leading to sinusitis and post nasal drip.

infected tooth and sinus infection can be examined by taking an OPG Radiograph and it can be treated effectively by a dentist .

sinus infection may produce thick and discolored mucus draine from nose .

bloody discharge from the nose may be due to Epistaxis or NASAL POLYS .

i would suggest you to get the examination done by a physician who will come up with exact diagnosis and treatment .

i hope this helps ,
take care .
