65 year old female and frequent, lengthy nose bleeds.  Bruise easily -cause?

Bleeding disorder?: I would like to get a thorough history: has this been happening for many years or is it recent? The most common cause is taking an anticoagulant, like aspirin, or vitamin e, garlic, Ibuprofen etc. Would also probably get a platelet count. Usually it's nothing major, but it should get checked out. ...Read more

Nasal suction: You need to be carful not to use too much force to suck the mucus. Must install saline nose drops or spray before suction to loosen up the mucus, hold the child & be careful not to hurt the baby in the process. Ear infection can result from nasal congestion. Good luck ...Read more

Accident caused severe bruising of the eye/fractured nose. 7 weeks ago, still slight dark line under the eye. Seek medical attention or just patience?

Probably patience: If everything is healing, and they eye is working normally, then allow the healing to continue. Blood pools in soft tissue after trauma and can take quite a while to completely resolve. Give it another 2 weeks unless you are having trouble with your vision, breathing, or sinuses. Take care! ...Read more

It : It is unclear on whether your otc decongestant is a nasal spray or pill. If it is a spray, i agree with dr. Funari that useage beyond 3-5 days can lead to rebound congestion ( rhinitis medicamentosa) and actually worsen your condition. If your nasal decongestant is in pill form (i.e., Pseudoephedrine containing) this will not create that type of condition. I also can not be sure where your tenderness is, but a common cause of nasal tenderness on the inside of the lower 1/3 of the nose ( nostril area ) is vestibulitis, or inflammation around a nasal hair follicle or oil gland. To be sure, and help with your nasal breathing difficulties, i would seek the advice of an ent. ...Read more
