    What causes nasal bleeding here?

Had a colonoscopy about 3 weeks ago and ever since I ve had a bloody nose. Not profusely, but to blow my nose or if I have an itch inside, my nose bleeds very easily. I was diagnosed with Crohn s Disease. Is this caused by the anestesia from having the tubes in my nose or is this a part of the Crohn s affect?

It may be due to dry nose.

To stop bleeding you can pinch nose for 10 minutes.

Avoid forceful blowing.

You can use nasal saline drops locally.

Do regular blood pressure monitoring.

Use humidifier

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