DRIED BLOOD IN NOSE

I HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM FOR OVER A YEAR NOW:
It usually starts when I awake in the morning my nose if full of dried blood scabs, when I blow it , it does not bleed again and usually clears up by the end of the day.  For the last two days my nose has been bloody with scabs again but has not got any better, do you think it is just dry air or an infection?

It could be related to dry air but that should not be assumed.  It could also come from one fragile blood vessel, at one site in your nose.  Infection is possible but unlikely without other signs of infection, such as pus, with the blood.  Finally you could have a bleeding nasal polyp, a tumor or what is called a granuloma in your nose.  You should have a careful exam of your nose and throat, by an ENT specialist, using a fiberoptic laryngoscope, if the cause of bleeding is not immediately apparent when he/she examines your nose.
