    hello,causes include trauma,nose picking,inflammation such as sinusitis, rhinitis,hereditary,abuse of drugs such as cocaine,cold weather,tumors ,alcohol,anemia,drugs such as ibuprofen called NSAIDS etc.the management is based on the cause.stopping the bleeding is the first.this can be by applying direct pressure around d the nasal bridge.nasal packing can also be done with cotton wool soaked with certain drug.if pressure application doesn't stop the bleeding,see a doctor asap
