Welcome in H.C.M.
I have gone through your query regarding minimal bleeding from nostril as you said that you notice it only as radish mucus during nose cleaning. since you are in much humid and warm climate thus chances of crusting in nose is much higher ,and during removal of mucus crest there is always chances of some trauma to congested mucous membrane.
This may be managed by applying lubricant cream or even liquid paraffin to nostrils

With Regards.
