Q.

2 year old nose bleed

Good afternoon

My son has been waking up with his nose bleeding for the past month. This morning there was nothing on the pillow but when he sat up, it started bleeding. Apparently he was bleeding again at school and this afternoon when he got home he bled again.

Should I be concerned and what can I do stop this?
