Yes: The cause must be determined. Nosebleed can be the result of a local irritation or a sign of more serious systemic disease. You need to start with an ENT physician.

Yes: It is unusual to have frequent nosebleeds. There are a number of potential causes, some of which could signify a serious medical condition. You should seek evaluation by your personal physician, who will help you sort this out.

Yes: seek professional medical advise and examination for this. A specialist in ENT may be your ultimate destination for the best treatment to assess the cause
