This is usually caused by a sensitive vein in the front of the nose - your GP will be able to see and cauterize this if needed. If he is an allergic child, it can also be caused by dryness of the nose - get him some saline nose spray or put bactroban ointment in his nose. If he is a sickly child his blood clotting factors need to be checked.
