Good afternoon..!!

Sudden bleeding from the nose in a well child with no cold / cough / foreign body could be normal.

Nothing to worry.

Usually there will be trivial or minor injury which will not be revealed by most of the kids.

So if it's recurring, it's better to visit pediatric ENT surgeon / haematologist for further evaluation and management.

Thank you, have a nice day..!!!
