That is correct. The remedies are basic and simple: nasal saline spray daily, and you can also apply Vaseline gel as a thin layer or coating by taking a small amount onto a cotton tip and gently massage the inside of each nostril. This is very helpful in keeping the nasal mucosa (the inner lining of the nose) moist and thus less likely to dry out and crack up, which helps prevent nose bleeds.
