This time of year nose bleeds can be common due to dry air. I would suggest trying AYR saline gel at night to moisten the nasal passages. If this does not help then he will need to be seen by a physician. Depending on the severity of the nose bleeds the tiredness could be due to blood loss or due to lack of energy from not eating. As far as the poor appetite there are several things that could cause this and may warrant a visit to the physician anyway to have blood work and labs done. Hopefully this helps answer your question.
