you shouldnot drink alcohol in any form as it prolongs the bleeding and clotting time,you may get bleeding episodes and the it wont stop ,,as nasal mucosa has rich blood supply and is very soft,,,even we say it is like a safety valve of pressure cooker, when your blood pressure rises bleeding from nose starts as a sign to control blood pressure.
