What is desperately and urgently needed here is a proper diagnosis of your nephew's bleeding problem.I cannot tell you what treatment is needed without being able to see him. He must be seen by a paediatric haematologist as soon as possible. There are experts in the paediatric departments of all of the main teaching hospitals in SA.
