Brief Answer:
Clinical evaluation needed.

Detailed Answer:


Thanks for your query.

The mentioned presentation of slight blood with nasal discharge is typical of allergic reactions. Nevertheless, nasal polyps or tumors need to be ruled out by direct clinical observation. I would insist you to take him to an ENT Specialist for the same. A negative result (absence) would, therefore, be fully reassuring.
