Nose bleed is serious, take her to the emergency ASAP.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to healthcaremagic.

Nose bleed following a head injury is worrisome and needs to be investigated to rule out the intracranial hemorrhage.

Please take your daughter to the ER ASAP.

You might have to get a CT scan done to rule out intracranial hemorrhage.

I hope this will help you, kindly revert back once everything is settled.

Best regards
