Check blood count: This may simply be due to a local problem in the mucosal lining of the nose, but it could also reflect a problem with a low platelet count or less likely an abnormality in your clotting mechanism. If you take aspirin, this could also contribute. Consider having a complete blood count, including a platelet count.
