Allergies: Allergies are rare to dental materials, but I have come across a couple. One is to nickel and the other to an acrylic temporary material. Nickel is a metal used in crown and partial denture alloys.
About 1 in 5 people are allergic to nickel.
Have you ever had an outbreak before like this? If so, this may be your answer: aphthous or herpetic ulcers. Trauma can cause an onset.
For the immediate short-term, ask your dentist for magic mouthwash.
Next, get to your dentist to have the situation evaluated. If he/she can't give you the answer you need, you will have to go to an allergist. ...Read more

Is it normal for nose-picking to cause bleeding?

Common: The number one cause of nasal bleeding is nose picking. It is really a question of timing and care. The bleeding is from trauma to the lining, and is commonly due to sharp or casual introduction of the finger and its relatively sharp nail. If you must pick your nose, doe it slowly, carefully and be conscious of the position of your finger and fingernails. ...Read more

I hit my nose and it won't stop bleeding. What can I do?

I hit my nose and it won't stop bleeding. What can I do?

Pinch nose, use Afrin (oxymetazoline): Nosebleeds occur for a variety of reasons. In children, 90% of nose bleeds occur in the front near the nostrils, which is why pinching the nose helps stop it, since pressure is applied. In adults, it can also be posteriorly as well, so pinching helps in fewer cases. Lean head forward, not backward, so you do not swallow the blood. Spray afrin (oxymetazoline). See your doctor/ent to look in nose and discuss causes. ...Read more

Nose bleeds are: Common in middle childhood & often reflect irritants like dust, pollen, fumes, smoke etc that the kid is exposed to on a regular basis. These things accumulate in the nasal passages & lead to nasal rubbing when the kids are half asleep or during the day. The trauma causes small capillaries in the nose to blead. Nasal saline wash can remove the irritants & nasal saline gel helps if applied at night. ...Read more

Medical evaluation.: You may have a blood vessel in one of your nostrils that is damaged. With a week of bleeding it is important that this be treated. See that you are dizzy with morning sickness.
