Probably dryness: Most likely the inside of your nose is dry assuming you're not using any intranasal medications. In some patients dryness creates an inflammatory condition so there is also congestion. Suggest saline to cleanse any mucous or crusts then sesame oil 3-4 drops each nostril if not, allergic to sesame. Do this 2-4 times daily. Compounding pharmacy might be able to get pharmaceutical grade oil- smells ok. ...Read more

If there is a polyp (growth) or other growth you should see an ent. ...Read more

Deviated septum: There are many reasons for bloody nose: dry nasal passages (increase in winter); allergies; picking.
