Brief Answer:
Yes. Possible.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

I had gone through your question and understand your concerns that you are having bleeding from nose.

Yes. it ( nasal bleeding) is common.

Cauterised mucosa, will heal by forming crusts. Dry air or allergic rhinitis can hamper the healing of normal mucosa, where foreful expulsion of crusts leads to bleeding

In my opinion, you need to do nasal douching with normal saline ( saline helps in slow removal of crusts- watch YouTube for nasal douching).

Hope this answers your question, if you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.
