Nose Bleeds

I’ve never gotten a nose bleed in my life except back when I use to pick my nose when I was 4. I never knew random nose bleeds were a common thing until recently I saw vision quest and saw and heard a few friends and family members get random ones. So I dont get it, why do people get random nose bleeds?

Dry capilaries in the nose that get broken(or cutoff whatever) when somebody rubs or picks there nose.

They get dry from heat. Either from a room being to Hot like in the winter or just from being outside in the hot sun.

If there was a reason they wouldn’t be random.

Sorry, that was me trying to be funny.

I always get them when the air gets dry. I guess I have veins in my nose that are close to the surface and they split open when the mucus membrane is dried out.
