hi,
there is no picture attached to this question.try reposting it.
repeated clots at the age of six is not normal and may have many underlying reasons like blood disorders,local nasal issues.
needs to be investigated further by doing blood tests including bleeting and clotting times.
Consult a ent surgeon and get a nasal endoscopy done.
thanks

Hi
You need to ask your doctor to check for malformed blood vessels in nose of your kids .
This is Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia Also known as Osler Weber Rendu syndrome
Sorry but it problem is confirmed you will need to do a full body vascular system check
Good Luck

in my opinion it could be Thrombocytopenia due to low platelets which is responsible for blood clotting, it causes nose bleeds and bruising..
start by doing a CBC and see a hematologist.
