Hello,

Welcome to just answer,

Drying of nasal passages, causing the tissue to crack and bleed due to cold weather can cause nasal bleeding.

Infection, Trauma including self-induced by nose picking, Allergic and non-allergic rhinitis, Hypertension (high blood pressure), Use of blood thinning medications, Alcohol abuse are few other causes of nasal bleeding.

Use saline nose sprays to lubricate nasal passages, Drink more fluids and Quit smoking. Smoking dries out your nose and also irritates it.
