In brief: Unlikely to help

In an otherwise normal child who does not have a bleeding disorder, the most common reason for nose bleeds is nose picking.
Two kinds of kids don't pick their nose: those without fingers, and those without a nose. The rest pick, some more than others, and some excessively. Humidity helps, so try some saline nasal spray to keep it lubricated, then see your pediatrician if the problem persists.

You can see your local ENT who can do simple chemical cautery as well. The above are good starts.

In brief: Unlikely to help

Frequent nose bleeding is often associated with a benign condition, e.
g., swollen inner lining due to nasal allergy. It would be prudent to seek medical attention if the child experiences prolonged bleeding, easy bruising, or pallor (pale looking).
