Thank you so much I did schedule him a appointment I've took him numerous of times to the er and all I get from them is that its from the weather and they give him saline but I feel he still shouldn't have blood clots I had plenty of nose bleeds as a child but never clots hopefully his new pediatrician will be able to help me out.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our advice.

A history of recurrent nose bleeds that last for 20 minutes and present with clots is serious and must be evaluated.

Take your son to the emergency room only when he has nose bleed.

Is your pediatrician aware of this? If not, please contact him or her today to schedule an appointment; follow your physician's recommendation.
