  • His sinus's are probably dried out and tender and bleeding or he could have a sinus infection. Try a humidifier or run a steaming bath and shut the door and hold him in there. Maybe take him to the doc for some meds.

  • My nose gets the same way when it's dry. I wouldn't be overly concerned unless it's more than just a bit of blood. You could always call your doctor if you're not sure too.
