Dear Sir
Thanks for your query to us.
Since the bleed is persistent, you must see your doctor on priority. This may be a result of hypertension/ medications/ infection. Since the blood coming from nose can be aspirated and can go to lungs, it is considered important to start treatment at the earliest.

Hi, Welcome to HCM.

Although infrequent, high blood pressure can cause nose bleed and is almost never the only reason. From the information you have provided, looks like your healing sinus infection may have dried your nasal mucosa and could have caused the bleed. Even though your condition does not sound urgent, it won't hurt to get your nose bleed examined by your primary physician.

Hope this helps.
