In brief: Nosebleeds

Hello, the blood vessels in the front of your nose are very close to the mucosal surface.
As air travels in and out of your nose, it can cause irritation. Other triggers include picking at the nose, allergy, intranasal medications, nasal oxygen administration recreational drugs, bleeding disorders, blood thinning medications and... Yes hypertension. Have your blood pressure checked to see if high.
