Chronic dry, itchy, stuffy nose

I am asking this on behalf of my husband.  He has chronic dry, itchy, stuffy nose particularly during the night. Accompanied by frequent nose bleeds.  This has been going on for well over a year.  We have been running a humidifier continually in the bedroom which does not help.
Does anyone have any idea what is causing this and/or any suggestions as to what my help?

Sounds allergy-related.

Has he tried any nasal saline sprays and/or rinses?

He has never had allergy issues, or so we thought.  That's an excellent idea.  We will try that. Thank you.

I love saline sprays and rinses because they don't have the harsh side effects.  

Try it and keep us posted about how it worked for him.

Sorry, forgot to type in my earlier post, I would recommend him following up with an ENT Specialist who deals with allergies as well.

Hi,

The following features seem to be like "atrophic rhinitis", in case of "allergic rhinitis" there will be either early morning sneezing/ running nose and sneezing episodes whenever he is exposed to dust or smoke, reduced smell and stuffy nose.

Atrophic rhinitis includes dry nose, nasal block, bleeding from the nose, decreased sense of smell and foul smell coming from the nose.

Its good to use saline nasal drops, as well encourage him to drink plenty of water and take vitamins containing Vitamin A&D. Please do consult your ENT specialist to look for any other problems.
