hello, thanks for your query, bleeding from nose in children most commonly by pulling dry crusts from nasal cavities. it could be also from rhinolith( foreign body), bleeding disorders, growth. kindly evaluate by an ent surgeon for definitive diagnosis and treatment. you can put xylomist ( decongest) nasal drops 3 drops/ 3 times: 1 week . all the best. take care.
