I suggest you guys take your dad to an ENT specialist (Ear Nose and Throat).

        I assume that the hospital has checked your father's {*filter*} pressure,
{*filter*} clotting time (PT, INR), {*filter*} cells and count, infections, etc. and
he was healthy at the time?

        If so, has he been on a low-cal, low-fat, weight-reducing diet? If he
has, he may be deficient in Vitamins A and C.

        Another possibility is polyps in the nasal cavities. He would need
an ENT to check that.

        Further, do you have electric or gas heating for the house? If so,
he may simply have dried-up mucous membranes which split and bleed. He can
apply a nasal lubricant called Secaris (in Canada). Vaseline is not
recommended because it flattens the nose hairs which filter out dirt and
other particles from the air he inhales.

        Vitamins A & C are essential for maintaining the integrity of mucous
membrane linings.
