In brief: Explanation

Nasal bleeding can be associated with any respiratory infection and this symptoms can recurring with any minor "cold" , because vessels at nasal septum became fragile and sensitive even to dry condition.

In brief: No, but body keeps

tearing itself down&rebuilding based on previous structure, e.
g. both injured & "healthy" tissues; time frame(s): eg. 3 days (innermost small intestinal cells) to 6 yrs (calcium & phosphate bones). Capillaries 1. very close to surface: Kiesselbach's area, 2. capillaries=fragile & 3. if local BP elevated (brain control, Docs cannot measure), then capillaries rupture?bleeding. Focus bigger issues?
