Hi. If even with pressure and a bandage the bleeding won't stop he needs to be seen either by his doctor or at an A&E. He needs to have his platelet count checked as well as coagulation factors and liver function to see why the bleeding won't stop. A doctor can easily stop the bleeding with silver nitrate sticks but the cause of the ongoing bleeding needs to be evaluated right away Let me know if you need more information please
