In brief: Many things

Frequent bloody noses and easy bruising should be evaluated by a doctor. Often these are normal occurrences due to trauma or environment (seasonal allergies and excessive nose blowing).
It could represent an underlying problem such as a blood disorder or genetic condition. Either way, best to go to your doctor and get a simple blood test or at least discuss the issue.

In brief: Nsaids, bld thinners

Is it possibly related to chronic use of nsaids or blood thinners like Coumadin (warfarin) which can cause prolonged clotting and therefore bruisiing and bloody noses?
