Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern.
Do not panic.
If there is a limp in any one leg please exclude local injuries and consult an orthopedic.
Bleeding of the nose is common in small children because they keep pricking their nose.
If bleeding is associated with non blanching rash then hematological disorders must be excluded.
Simple bleeding can be stopped by application of ice pack to the local area.
If the rash is itchy apply calamine lotion to the local areas.
If the symptoms increase please consult your pediatrician.
Hope this answers your query.
If you have any other queries kindly direct them to me.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
