Nose bleeding

My 9 year old son has been bleeding for the past 2 nights for about 10 minutes, i normally tilt his head and rub ice on his nose and then it stops. What causes that and should i be worried and take him to the Dr.
Thanks in advance

This is a very common problem as I am sure you already know. The question always is why is he having these nose bleeds so suddenly? Just to be on the safe side ask your doctor to do a full blood count test on him and to check that he is in good health.
