Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Nose bleeding can be caused by the medication side effects.
Aspirin for example is a common cause.
Abnormal blood count is another common cause.

Low platelet count, bleeding disorders are such possibilities.
Less commonly malignancies like leukemia, multiple myeloma can present like this.
Nasal polyps, nasal dryness are common local causes.
