Hi Heba, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

Your son is having epistaxis and there are various causes to this. Kindly don't as it common in this age group, get him examined by a ENT Specialist to rule out the exact cause for his nose bleeds.

The treatment will depend upon the cause.

When ever he has a nosebleed episode make him lie down on the edge of his bed with head dangling down and press and release his nostrils alternatively, for 5 to 10 minutes until the bleeding subsides.

Give him healthy nutritious balanced diet.

I wish him Good Health.

All the Best.

Take Care.
