It is not possible to recommend a medicine for a young child who is having nosebleeds without trying to find out why this is happening. It is important that your son has a full blood count test done to make sure that his blood cells are normal. If this test is nornal he should be seen by an ENT specialist as he may have a bleeding area in his nose that may need treatment.
