It is certainly not normal to have nosebleeds daily. Most nosebleeding situations should resolve with a few days unless there are other underlying problems.

Your husband's condition should be evaluated by an ENT specialist promptly. Besides treating any underlying condition, prolonged bleeding can lead to anemia which can then lead to other complications. ...Read more

My nose bleeds often these days. It had started bleeding from the time my girlfriend's nose hit mine while kissing and it bleeds quite oftenany remedy?
Nosebleed guide: Most nose bleeds arise from trauma to the thin lining overlying the sensitive nasal cartilage. This trauma can be from a tissue, a finger, a knuckle, an arm swipe, etc. When you have a nosebleed, blow your nose, then pinch and hold for 5min. Don't peak. Then don't touch don't wipe. Don't put tissue in the nose to check it. This pulls the clot you just made off and it bleeds again. Hands off works. ...Read more
