What is your symptom?
It is commonly caused by rhinitis with or without infection and the blockage of tear ducts.
Colors of the discharge from nose indicate the type of rhinitis (inflammation of nose) you have.
Nose blockage can be caused by tumors in nose or aberrant growth of bones in nose. Polyps in nose and allergic rhinitis can also cause nose blockage. Breathing through mouth, as a result of nose block, will give rise to dry mouth, snoring and even cessation of airflow during sleep (sleep apnea)
Nose pricking, nose injuries and sneezing hardly can cause nose bleed. Immediate medical treatment is necessary if there is a severe or heavy nose bleed. Uncommon conditions like cancer also cause nose bleed.
