In brief: Yes
Repeated nose bleeds usually come from fractured capillaries in the tip of the nasal septum (between nostrils).
To stop it lean forwards (not lying down) place a cold pack overf the nose and keep the nosrils squeezed for 10 to 15 mins. To prevent it, curiously enough, look to his diet-----too many empty calories makes the capillaries fragile!
