Are nosebleeds during concussion harmful?

My son had a concussion 4 weeks ago..he appeared to be getting better but symptoms returned last week and we had him in emerg. on Sunday. Since that time, he's had 2 nosebleeds, both started randomly but stopped on their own. Should I be cocerned and take him back to emerg? He had one minor headache this week but no other symptoms. He's 15 and it was a lacrosse injury.

HI as per your query as your son had a concussion injury causing nasal bleeds, please take hIm to a hospital and get admitted and evaluate, keep for observation. IT is not a good sign to get nasal bleeds in head injury.Thanks
