My nose bleeds when I blow it, 4 days in a row. What's wrong?

I've always told myself that whenever my nose bleeds all of a sudden I'm over-exhausted or something. I do my usual farmers blow in the shower and whenever I'm done with my right nostril and open my eyes, I see blood everywhere. I know I've been a little tired the past few days, but this has gotten ridiculous. My nose stops bleeding within a couple minutes or so depending on how long I hold it shut.

Does anyone know why my nose is bleeding like this? I've blown my nose in the shower routinely but I don't understand why this just started to happen; it's quite annoying.

Thanks for your time.

Sometimes irritation to the inside of your nose can cause bleeds so can a sinus infection or that you may be blowing your nose to hard.
Hope this helps!

Some things that may help your nose heal . . . and I totally agree that blowing too hard can cause bleeding. Try running a humidifier at night (especially in the winter) and if you can handle it (have been doing this myself for years), a thin coating of Vaseline just inside the nostrils.
