Nasal irritation: This suggests that you have significant irritation in your nose, making you susceptible to bleeding whenever you have any trauma to the nose, such as a blast of high-velocity air. Seeing an allergist or ENT will be the most helpful, but in the meantime, you can try moisturizing the nose with vitamin E oil, placed in the tip of the nose with the little finger or a cotton swab, at bedtime.
