Dental work done under anaesthesia, suffering from nosebleeds. Treatment options?

Hi there. My 5yr old son had dental work under general anaesthetic & was discharged approx 6 hrs ago. His nose has been bleeding minimally on & off ever since. My ex-wife has him so I can only go one what she tells me. Ive asked her to contact the hospital to check but I m looking for answers while I wait to hear from her. Thanks.

Dentist, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 's  Response have not mentioned what procedure had been carried out...nasal bleed is normal owing to a traumatized naso tracheal intubation ( tube placed through nostril that goes inside the trachea for airway maintenance during anesthesia) ...that persists for some time. if profuse bleeding persists you can consult your ENT surgeon for further management.
