Hello,

As per your history, it may be due to dry nose.

For that you can apply nasal saline drops locally. Alternatively you can use Vaseline Jelly locally

Along with that avoid hot and humid environment. Use humidifier

During bleeding never lie down. Press nose for 10 minutes. Avoid nose picking or forceful nose blowing

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
