Headache, loss of appetite, vomiting, nose bleeds. Taken tylenol. Medical emergency?

My 5 year old son was complaining of a headache last night before bed and wouldn t eat much all day. I gave him children s Tylenol and he went to sleep. A few hours later he woke up vomiting and saying his head still hurt. He went back to sleep and we woke up this morning and he had some blood in his nose , I have been noticing the last week or so every morning he wakes up with just a little blood barely peeking out. I just don t know if I should take him to the e.r. or if I should not worry and keep him in bed.

Hello and welcome to HCM,

The symptoms of headache, and vomiting suggest indigestion and associated constitutional symptoms.
Bleeding from the nose can be due to trauma, or a part of rhinitis (nasal infection and inflammation).
You can give pain killer for the headache.
Sufficient nutrition and fluids should be given for the losses caused by vomiting.
A clinical examination is required to look for cause of bleeding from the nose.
Nasal packing can be done in case the bleeding is not controllable by simple measures.

Thanks and take care
