Nose: Great question. Usually comes from dryness like when you spend time in air cond or when the heat comes on. Also from nose picking. Made worse with blood thinners such as ibuprofen. Make sure you have a humidifier at night and put some vaseline into your nose several times a day. Alcohol can be a vasodilator and make it worse. See an ENT to check it out
