Get a nosebleed seems to be a rite of childhood. It’s pretty scary for children and very embarrassing for adults. It is easy to come by because there are tiny capillaries very close to the skin inside the nose that is easily fracture.

Try not to fall on your nose. This is obviously for adults but for children takes it a few times before they realize that the pain and aggravation of a bloody nose. It does not take long before we learn that our arms are long for a reason, and they can stop us from running into things with our nose.
Do not pick your nose with sharp nails. This sounds gross but someone has to say it. The skin on the inside of the nose is very tender and thin. Sharp nails can quickly cut the skin and rupture a vein just below the surface. If this occurs, apply pressure to the area until the bleeding stops. If it seems to continue longer than usual, pack a small woven into the nostril until the bleeding stops.
If your nose is bleeding for no apparent reason, through nutrition. Vitamin K or C deficiency can cause nosebleeds. Vitamin K is found in grains, peas and green leafy vegetables and aids in the process of blood clotting. Vitamin C is said to help strengthen the walls of blood vessels and are found in fresh fruits and vegetables. If this is not the case, then maybe you should go to your doctor and request a blood analysis that there may be something more serious going on.
Hold your nose skin moist. If you get bloody noses, it can be quite easy to breathe very dry air, which can happen in the winter in the room warmed by electric heat. Apply a moisturizer as needed to keep skin soft and from getting cracks. For small children or older, a room humidifier if necessary. This will help with head colds too.
Make sure you do not have high blood pressure. With an increase in pressure, the small capillaries can burst and cause a nosebleed. Some allergens can also cause irritation of the nasal tract. Severe infections can lead to loss of platelets and thus slow clotting. All these symptoms need to be treated by a physician.
