Bloody Nose

I have searched everywhere for an answer to my question, and have yet to come up with anything beneficial. Hopefully after I explain my situation, someone can help!
I had used cocaine on occasion for about 3 months. I would say about 5 to 6 grams total within that three month period. I realized I didn't really need it to have fun, was wasting too much money, and it overall wasn't healthy, so I completely stopped. It has been two months since I touched it. The thing is, I am getting horrible nose bleeds from nothing. I had the occasional one when I was using cocaine, and thats one of the reason's that I stopped. But now I get probably three or more a week, from just lightly pushing on the outside of my nose. Sometimes it will start all on it's own. I have no idea what to do, if if this is even related to the cocaine use. I have tried cleaning it and using vaseline. Its just gotten to the point that I need to know if this is normal, or if I should see a doctor and maybe something else is going on? If anyone knows anything that might help, I would really appreciate it. Nothing else about my lifestyle has changed, and I am a pretty healthy person otherwise. Please help if you have any advice!!

research the internet. google is a great place to start. erowid.org has a lot of great information as well. i'm not sure that the cocaine abuse itself led to this, rather once incident in which you severely damaged something.
