What causes recurrent nose bleeds in a child?

hi sir
My son is 6 years old. Blood comes out from his right nose once/twice a week. We have gone through the tests prescribed by the ENT esp. All the reports are normal. Only he has prescribed Allegra for a week. After this there was a relief for 5-6 months and now again it become regular process.

Hi,
From history it seems that he might be having allergic rhinitis producing congestion and soreness in the nose giving rise bleeding from nose.
Give him Decongestant, anti-allergic medicine.
Put decongestant nasal drops like Otriivn drops.
Ask him not to remove crusts from nose.
Ok and take care.
