Nose bleed: This is likely a small vessel of the anterior portion of the nose that is "fragile" and prone to bleeding. You may want to have it looked at and cauterized so it stops bleeding. This is an easy procedure that most physicians can do, but definitely any ENT doctor. ...Read more

How dangerous is unilateral nasal polyp without bleeding? I have white thick mucus from my nose and throat. No blood. I'm 31yr old male never smoked.

Nasal polyps: Most polyps are benign. However, you do need to see an ENT doctor who can examine you with a fiberoptic scope and set up CT imaging to evaluate the extent of the polyps. There is often more than one. You likely need surgery to remove the polyps to biopsy them and help improve symptoms. Polyps usually contribute to congestion, loss of smell, and sinusitis. ...Read more

History & physical: The key to accurately diagnosing any condition is to start with listening carefully to your story, then asking more focused questions (a history). Then a careful physical exam, based on history, will help narrow down possibilities. Looking in nose & throat w/ light sounds obvious here, but presenting to your doc w/ a request for specific testing, may create bias. May need bloodwork or ENT refer. ...Read more

When I see girls in hot pants or in mini skirt, my nose starts bleeding and sometimes blood comes out, is it normal?

Not Normal OrHealthy: Capillary blood flow, body wide, is controlled by arterioles (end arteries just prior to capillaries). Capillaries=only 5? m inside diameter, very thin walled, very fragile. Too much blood flow/pressure let through arteriole ruptures capillaries, thus bleeding. As a part of your emotional responses to sexual attraction, your nasal arterioles are relaxing, ? ing pressure in Kiesselbach's capillaries. ...Read more

What are the cause of left nose bleeding. See some blood. I work in kitchen. Sometimes nose bleeding occur. Not every day. 2 times in months occur?

See your MD: Nose bleeding can be associated with chronically breathing air that is too dry, to nasal trauma or digital removal of mucus crusts. Also, blood pressure needs to be checked. Some growths in the nose may bleed. You may try saline nasal spray, vasiline to moisturize, but you must see your doctor or ent-- (ears, nose, throat doctor). Low platelets may be associated as well. ...Read more

I'm 22, a smoker I have been noticing streaks of blood in my mucus. Today there was quite a lot of blood, my nose has been dry and bleeding. Thoughts?

I suspect the main: Cause of the blood is the dryness is your nose contributing to microscopic blood vessel injury, drainage down the back of your throat, and then observed in your respiratory secretions. Humidification and some petroleum jelly in the nose should help. But please don't take this as reassurance about your smoking...if you continue, there may come a time when the blood streaks are from lung cancer: ( ...Read more

My nose is bleeding but nothing is coming out of my nose. I know it's bleeding because I sneezed into a tissue and I saw blood. What should I do?

Nothing: A small show of blood this way is of minimal consequence. You can lubricate inside your nose with vaseline or Aquaphor. If sneezing and/or congestion is an issue, a non-sedating antihistamine may help such as loratadine [Claratin] etc. Nasal steroid such as triamcinolone or fluticasone is more effective but occasionally causes bleeding. Often both are used. ...Read more

My 1 n a half yr. Old felt face first, he was bleeding a lot from nose n lip. My concern now is his lip, blood just on lip.

Chances are that it: Is an abrasion or laceration that'll heal on it's own, but ask his pediatric dentist or pediatrician to check his mouth. At that age, he's not going to let you get a good look or keep an ice pack on his lip to reduce swelling. Popsicles are good at a time like this. ...Read more

Epistaxis: A small amount of blood when you blow your nose is common, often from the irritation of sinusitis or an upper respiratory infection. It can be bleeding in your sinuses or from small cracks or irritation of the nasal mucosa (at this time of year, often from overly dry air.) ...Read more

Spontaneous: Spontaneous nose bleeding like you describe (especially from just one side of the nose) is often from a prominent blood vessel inside your nose (usually on your septum). Often this blood vessel is either larger or closer to the skin lining surface than normal making it easier to be traumatized or rupture.

There are other possible causes of nose bleeding such as growths, polyps, etc. Given the persistence of your symptoms it would probably be a good idea to have your nose checked out. If a prominent blood vessel is localized it can be cauterized very easily in the office. ...Read more

What can I do if my nose has been bleeding and I've been coughing up blood. What is it?

What can I do if my nose has been bleeding and I've been coughing up blood. What is it?

Various things: Nosebleeds can occur from any part of the nose. In children, 90% of nose bleeds occur in front near the nostrils, which is why pinching the nose helps stop it, since pressure is applied. In adults, it can also be posteriorly, so pinching helps in fewer cases. Lean head forward, not backward, so you do not swallow the blood. May need scope to evaluate for nasal mass and blood work to check if ok. ...Read more

When sick (cold/flu) or stuffy, is it normal to have some chunky bits with blood when you blow your nose? As long as it doesn't keep bleeding (no nosebleed), is there no bleeding issue (ie. Too thin)?

When sick (cold/flu) or stuffy, is it normal to have some chunky bits with blood when you blow your nose? As long as it doesn't keep bleeding (no nosebleed), is there no bleeding issue (ie. Too thin)?

Inflamed sinus: A viral infection can affect your sinus/nasal passage and cause it to become very swollen or inflamed. If you combine that with the dry air we often encounter during the winter time (especially if our home heating system is high), then you can develop cracks in the passages - often causing a nosebleed. Saline nasal sprays, or vaseline on a Q-tip can help. Best wishes. ...Read more

Why can I smell blood/metal in my nose when there is no bleeding, especially with acidic or strong smells? I got hit in the nose a few days ago but it stopped bleeding quickly and it's been a while so...?

Why can I smell blood/metal in my nose when there is no bleeding, especially with acidic or strong smells? I got hit in the nose a few days ago but it stopped bleeding quickly and it's been a while so...?

Strange Smell: If the strange smell started after you were hit in the nose, it may be related to the blood that remained inside your nose or sinuses. If so, it should clear in a week or two. I do not advise washing it out, it might start to bleed. If the smell continues for more than two weeks, an ENT (nose) specialist could look inside. If you have other symptoms, go sooner. ...Read more

Is it normal for someones nose to bleed almost every day? My husband is 24 and gets nosebleeds almost everyday and he gets them for no reason without even touching his nose itll start bleeding and he will let the blood drip till it stops which is usually

It: It is certainly not normal to have nosebleeds daily. Most nosebleeding situations should resolve with a few days unless there are other underlying problems.

Some of these predisposing conditions include deficiency of clotting factors, high blood pressure resulting in rupture of the vessels, trauma to the nasal membranes, sinus disease, vascular lesions, or rarely tumors of the nasal passages.

Your husband's condition should be evaluated by an ENT specialist promptly. Besides treating any underlying condition, prolonged bleeding can lead to anemia which can then lead to other complications. ...Read more
