Brief Answer:
Most nose bleeds are without cause and resolve spontaneously.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and sorry to hear about these frequent nose bleed thatyour daughter has.

I understand your worries when the doctors recommend just observation. however, this is the most common approach because most have no cause and do not require any specific treatment. I will side with your doctor and recommend that you observe only for the above reasons. I will recommend further medical investigation if the amount of blood loss and frequency increases from what it is at this time. I will also recommend that she gets extra iron tablets to avoid running low on blood.

I hope this helps. I wish her well and do well to update me on her progress. also, feel free to ask for more information and clarification if need be.
