What causes nosebleed and dryness?

I have an occasional nose bleed. In February, I went to family physician and he said my nose looked dry and said to use saline spray. I did that and it worked. I still get an occasional nosebleed, maybe once every couple of weeks or so and I haven t routinely been using saline mist. I just don t understand why in the past year I ve all of a sudden had nosebleeds when it s never been a problem? I m 40 year old male

Hi,
It seems that you might be having chronic ulcer in the nostril giving this trouble.
Sudden increase in blood pressure does cause this problem.
Go for blood pressure checking and if have high BP,go for treatment.
Do not remove crusts from nose.
Put otrivin nasal drops.
Ok and take care.
