Thank you for your query.

The nose bleed comes from an area known as Little's area on the nasal septum. As it is occuring frequently, the area must be raw and not healed properly. Ensure that a little vaseline or any bland ointment is applied on the area so that a soft scab forms and heals. Also ensure that your son's blood pressure is checked to rule out hypertension.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
