Brief Answer:
Avoid picking the nose

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

There can be many causes for nose bleeds. The most common is nose picking. The cause may also be high blood pressure, increased vasculature inside nose, some swelling in nose, allergies, etc.

You should see an ear, nose and throat specialist to get your nose examined. If a cause is found, then taking care of it will cure the nose bleeds.

Bend forward during nose bleeds, so that you do not swallow blood. Avoid nose picking. If dry nose is present, then using a humidifier in the room helps.

Hope it helps.
