Have you seen a doctor? If not, go immediately to rule out skin cancer.

Hello,

Nose bleed is called epistaxis. It is very common due to local inflammatory diseases, infections, and trauma. Sometimes liver disorders, sinus and nasopharyngeal abnormalities or serious causes like bleeding disorders and leukemia can also cause epistaxis. It is also important to rule out any nasal polyps or benign or malignant growths of nose. Examination from an ENT specialist is mandatory in your case.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
