Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for your query,
Recurrent nose bleeds are due to infection/nose picking/trauma/bleeding disorder.
Since he is having upper respiratory symptoms,there will be dryness of nasal mucosa.
Apply cold compresses over nose in case of bleeding.
Apply firm pressure over nose for 5 minutes.
Put liquid paraffin drops in both nostrils .
Give plenty of fluids.

If symptoms persist get him evaluated by pediatrician.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
