10 year old with a concussion after an injury. No bleeding in brain. Nose bleeding after healing. Why?

My 10 year old son got a concussion after head butting a soccer ball 3-4 weeks ago-- had headaches for about 3 days-- stayed out of school- we saw doctor and got tested, and CT scan -- no swelling or bleed in the brain.
Was fine for 2 weeks, then as soon as he resumed physical excercise/sports, headaches came back in the evening. Now, 4 weeks later, he gets a bloody nose every night. Could this be results of consussion after effects/

Thank you for posting your query.

Nose bleeds are unlikely to occur four weeks after the head injury, so, is most probably not related to the earlier concussion.

Moreover, a normal CT scan excludes any significant injury to brain or skull bones.

If his symptoms persist, please show him to an ENT doctor.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
