You have listed your son's symptoms well, but do not mention how long he has had these symptoms. While headaches and nose bleeds on their own are quite common in children of your son's age, when these two symptoms occur together one should certainly take note. Possible causes include migraine, sinus infection and less likely, serious conditions such as a tumour. For this reason it is essential for your son to be seen ASAP by a paediatrician. It may be best to take him to your nearest paediatric emergency unit immediately.
