My 2year old has a sore on his nose (inside) after being heavily congested at night times. He is less congested now but sore is bleeding. What can I apply?

The wound should resolve spontaneously. Try to avoid blowing his nose or wiping it excessively as this will disturb the clot formation and result in bleeding. You could dab the nose with cotton wool soaked in salt water to prevent an infection and to lubricate the nasal passages
