Mr. Kline:

I have a close friend (male) who also had very frequent nosebleeds as a 
child (about once a week).   He did and still gets them at any time of the 
day.  His doctor told him that he is prone to them b/c his vessels 
were close to the surface and that it was not a serious problem.  

While he still gets nosebleeds (he's 26 now) they are not as frequent.  
They're down to about one every month (at the most).  They don't affect his 
lifestyle and he's quite use to them.

But as always, get a physician to check him out.

Good luck,
