Around 60% of the people experience nosebleeds at least at some point in their lives. Sometimes it is caused by nose picking or dry air. To treat allergies, your doctor may suggest medicines like antihistamines or decongestants to control the runny nose or itching. These medicines can dry your nasal passage and cause nosebleeds. This is not very dangerous because the nosebleed will stop after a certain time. However if you face frequent spells of nose bleeding and you are having difficulty in breathing, seeing a doctor is a must.
