Bleeding from nose or epistaxis is most commonly because of nose picking . If your son's nose is red and he also rubs his nose often and sneezes a lot, he may also be having allergic rhinitis. Additionally if he has bled often it's advisable to rule out a bleeding or clotting dysfunction. You need to visit your Paediatrician.
