Bleeding from the nose. Need surgery for small nostrils? Is dryness the problem?

Last time I had some inputs from Dr. Abid, but I would like to emphasize that because climatic conditions my nostrials which are small are often becoming dry and while I clean them with water blood starts to ooze. Last time when Abid answered my query I consultated a local doctor on this small nostrials and any need for operation he suggested not required. But for now what s the solution to stop this drying up of Nostrials and blood from it. What could be the possible reasons for this problem

Thanks for contacting HCM
I had gone through your query, It suggest that your are suffering from epistaxis (Nasal bleeding) due to the pricking of the nostril through nose.
In such patients I advised
Liquid paraffin nasal drop 5 drops 5 times a day.
Botroclot nasal drop 2 drops 3 times a day.
Nasal douch
Avoid nasal pricking.

If you have any doubt, I will be available for your query.
