Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Many young adults are prone to spontaneous nose bleeds (epistaxis), most commonly from a single vein in the septum (partition wall) in the front of the nostril. Nose bleeds can be caused by:

– Infection
– Drying of the nose lining
– Trauma
– Blowing and sneezing because of a cold or allergic reaction
– Heavy coughing
– Vigorous exercise
