Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing this. It can be from a slightly dry nose. At this point it does not sound concerning.

you should avoid blowing your nose for a few days and can try a small amount of Vaseline in wash nostril. Another option is a cream called Naseptin but requires a prescription.

also worth making sure your blood pressure is well controlled.

if despite this and it doesn’t settle then at that point it should be examined and possibly investigated.
