Nose bleed: The most common cause of nose bleed is from dryness of the lining tissues inside the nose. Sometimes, it's so dry that the nose forms large crusts.

I was working today and our store is super cold. I was blowing my nose because I'm already sick and there was blood. Why did I get a nose bleed?

Cold response: Your nose functions to warm the air you breath before it reaches the lungs. When the air is colder, the nasal vessels become dilated to improve your ability to do this. That also tends to send other fluids into the soft tissues of the nose, leading to increased secretion, runniness. With dilated superficial blood vessels and the trauma of blowing, you get epistaxis, a fancy word for a bloody nose! ...Read more

I'm sick at the moment and had a nose bleed from blowing my nose well, my blood actually has an orange tent to it. It looks orange. Why? Sepsis?
