Hi,

That is good to hear. The most common causes of nosebleeds are dryness, nose picking, injuries, colds, allergies, infections, and blood clotting disorders. The nose has many blood vessels in it to help warm and humidify the air you breathe. These vessels lie close to the surface, making them easy to injure. This is not necessarily related to seizures as in your previous case. Continue with  the medications prescribed and he'll be better in no time. Take care and regards.
