ds2 (9) does not normally suffer nosebleeds but one suddenly started yesterday afternoon. it has bled twice more since then.

what should i do ?

I think once you get one nosebleed, it is easy for it to restart again in the following few days.

I think the big problem is when you can't get it to stop, in which case you would go to A&E.
