What causes nose bleeding?

I am very concerned my husband has been having nosebleeds for the last 3 days. He has noticed they come on faster when he’s unloading his truck at work of heavy equipment we are trying the saline solution tonight. He said his nasal passage felt dry this morning. I need help. I don’t know what else to try. There is so much blood when he gets them.

Hello,my name is Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi.
I understand your concern.
Nosebleeds are common due to the location of the nose on the face, and the large amount of blood vessels in the nose.
Some advice that I can give to you are:
-Spraying the nose with a medicated nasal spray (such as Afrin) before applying pressure may help stop a nosebleed.
-Apply an ice pack to your nose and cheeks. Cold will constrict the blood vessels and help stop the bleeding.
Hope it helps,
kind regards!
