Bleeding from the nose is one of the most common problems faced by many people during the summer. Nose bleeding may occur with out any prior warnings, even if the weather is extremely cold or due to physical exertion. If you are beyond 50 and are suffering from a bleeding nose, then it is suggested that you get your blood pressure checked. As the increase in the blood pressure ruptures the walls of the blood vessels in the nose, it causes the nose to bleed.
