Q.

Nose bleed

My 5 year old son's nose bleeds a lot. Most of the time at night.
Is this normal and when should I worry.

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

This is very common and usually not a cause for concern.As you mention that it is happening a lot, I think it would be best if you took him to your paediatrician for a check up and a blood count.
