Hello,
If nose bleeding occurs after head injury which is reccurrent and if it is associated with headache or vomitting then admit your child . Keep under observation for 24 hours and do Brain imaging to rule out any skull injury.
If its only nose bleeding without vomitting or headache then consult ENT surgeon to check for any nose injury.
Take care.
