When your dog has her teeth cleaned, make sure that the vet checks for any spaces around the teeth. Sometimes something called an oral-nasal fistula can develop. This can lead to chronic sinus infections, and cause a bloody nose. Also, having the nasal passages checked for any growths, is a good idea. Unless you haven't told your vet that the dog isn't better, maybe it's time to change vets.

Look in your area for a dog dermatoligist.  I had ten vet vists, and over a thousand dollars in my dog before I was finally recomended to one.  In my case the steroids seem to help at first then he got much worse.  The dog dermitoligist told me the steroids were making him worse.  My dog didn't have a bleeding nose.  He was losing hair and scratching till he was bleeding.  Good luck.
