Nose bleeds can be very common and are usually due to fragile nasal capillaries in the front part of the nose. His doctor can cauterise bleeding spots very easily in clinic so this is worth making an appointment for.

 

Do ensure that he does not pick his nose and keep the air humidified if you have dry heating.
