It's caused by dryness and allergies, most likely.  I have had the same thing off and on most of my life.  Whatever you do, don't let someone talk you into putting petroleum products in there for lubrication -- they block the pores and make it worse.  You might try some unpetroleum jelly (sold in health food stores) or some aloe gel, just a little on a Q-tip, and see if it helps.

Try some saline drops to ease the dryness.  They're harmless and sold over the counter with cold remedies.

Paxil is absolutely correct about the use of petroleum products.....as he said, they will do nothing except make the problem worse.
Personally I would recommend the use of a Neti Pot. It uses a very mild saline solution and irrigates not only your nose, but your sinuses as well.
