Hello,

It may be due to dry nose.

For that, you can apply nasal saline drops locally.

Alternatively, you can use coconut oil locally.

Avoid hot and humid environment. Use humidifier.

During bleeding pinch nose for 10 minutes and never lie down.

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

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician
