Nosebleeds everyday

Ds is 11 and he has had nosebleeds 4 days in a row now. It's nothing to worry about is it? I'm pretty sure it's just the weather.

His dad has been whining about Ds seeing a doctor so we are getting it checked out today.

Ds doesn't pick his nose to cause the bleed, I was talking to him earlier and his nose just started bleeding.

But nosebleeds in children are common aren't they?

Yes they are. My ds had them for years almost every day and there was absolutely nothing wrong with him. Checked out by doc and perfectly healthy, still gets the odd one now at 18

My dd has them frequently, GP checked and found a staph infection in her nostrils. She has had cream to get rid of this.
