Is he seeing a neurologist? That's all I can think of to tell you. I'm assuming that your nephew is seeing a doctor of some sort but a specialist would seem the definate route to go.

Take care.

Seizures are never a normal part of growing up. As Nicola said, this child should see a neurologist, or at least a pediatrician. Seizures can be caused by several different conditions/diseases.

Nose bleeds may not be related to the seizures. A lot of young children get frequent nose bleeds in cold, dry weather. But, have it checked just in case.

Here's an article on seizures:

You can look up nose bleeds on this site as well.

It sounds odd that you're looking for information only now - surely his parents must have noticed this.
