Can decongestants dry you out and cause more harm?

I'm wondering. Can decongestants cause your nose to dry out and not let your congestion drain? I noticed since i have been taking a decongestant that it hasn't relieved my congestion I still have pressure also i notice if i blow my nose a lot it can start to bleed. Should I lay off the decongestants for a while? i was thinking of maybe using steam with a vapor to help moisten up the mucious to maybe alow it to drain.
