Thank you for the information,

Most cases of nose bleeding is harmless though it is quite frightening,

The common causes of bleeding from nose are cold, allergy, irritation, nasal pricking ,nasal polyp, growth, foreign body, respiratory infection, bleeding disorder etc.

High blood pressure may also lead to nasal bleeding but your blood pressure is low.

When it is coming from one nose only there can be a local issue on that side.

When it is continuing for a week , you can take a consultation with your doctor.

Variation of temperature & humidity can be factors.

You can try humidifier at night to prevent drying of nose, if any such.

If the bleeding does not stop spontaneously, gently squeeze the nose for about 5-10 minutes while she can breath through mouth.

Ice wrapped with a piece of cloth can be kept over the hard part of the nose.

This can be repeated a few times.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.
