Hi Lisa,
Nasal Bleeding occurs because of High Blood Pressure or congestion of inner membrane of nose.
If your husband does not have cold, get his blood pressure checked.
If blood pressure is right get the Liver Function Tests done to check his liver status. Prothrombin Time, Bleeding Time and Clotting Time should be checked.
