In severe infection of upper respiratory tract , nose bleed is not uncommon.
Sometimes with lung infection,blood pressure may go up.
If your husband smokes then he should quit.
He requires consultation in person.

Nosebleed is the cause of hypertension as well as severe rhinitis. B.P should not be ignored and 170/110 is fair enough to start with antihypertensives.
