Are you on any blood thinners?

What have you tried so far?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
Likely you have a blood vessel in your nose that is close to the surface.

It is a vessel that is easily irritated and bleeds easily.

An ear, nose and throat doctor (ENT) can easily cauterize this and fix the problem
