Common cause for epistaxis is drying of nasal mucous membrane due to dry weather. Lubricating the inside of the nostril with an ointment like vaseline with a bud may help.

My 4-year old son has a lot of nose bleeds--about 6-10 per month--and yesterday at his first dental exam with x-rays, it was noted that the roots of his top two front teeth have eroded away and no longer connect with the adult teeth underneath. Is there any connection between the missing roots and the nosebleeds?
