Nosebleeds: One way to avoid nose bleeds is to use nasal saline, a sterile salt water solution, frequently. It keeps the mucous membranes in the nose moistened and can keep you from getting nose bleeds. If you get them frequently you might want to see an ENT physician. Sometimes they can treat the vessels in the nose so that they do not bleed. ...Read more

I smell blood in my 2 year old's nose. Over the past week she has had 2 nose bleeds and she fell from her bike prior to this. Is her nose bleeding int?

Not likely: If her nose were bleeding internally it would appear in her mouth. She probably has some rawness that may be causing the smell. Also make sure she doesn't have a foreign object stuck in her nose. Use a salt water nose spray to get out dried blood and also help prevent future nose bleeds ...Read more

My 2yo gets nose bleeds and it stops rather quickly but will be all over her face. It happens every couple months. Does it sound like bleeding prob?

Nose bleeds are: Common in 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

Epistaxis: Great decision to stop using e-cig. You're doing yourself a great favor. As for your nose bleeds (epistaxis), as long as they stop, you're most likely fine. But it's still a good idea for your Family Doc or even ENT to take a peek up there to make sure nothing else is going on. In meantime, use spare non-vaping time to eat right, exercise regularly & get enough sleep. Wrap it up each & every time. ...Read more

My nose bleeds often these days. It had started bleeding from the time my girlfriend's nose hit mine while kissing and it bleeds quite oftenany remedy?

Nosebleed guide: Most nose bleeds arise from trauma to the thin lining overlying the sensitive nasal cartilage. This trauma can be from a tissue, a finger, a knuckle, an arm swipe, etc. When you have a nosebleed, blow your nose, then pinch and hold for 5min. Don't peak. Then don't touch don't wipe. Don't put tissue in the nose to check it. This pulls the clot you just made off and it bleeds again. Hands off works. ...Read more

Is it natural for your ears to bleed when your nose bleeds? My ears weren't bleeding as bad as my nose, but I just wondered if I should be concerned.

Bleeding ears: Bleeding from both the ears and the nose at the same time is unusual. There are a couple of instances in which you could see both. First is if you have a hole or a perforation in your eardrum. When the nose bleeds, you would also have to get that blood up through the eustachian tube and into the ear. I haven't see this very often. Second is if there is bleeding from the ear canal at same time. ...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

Epistaxis: Sometimes epistaxis (nosebleed) is mechanical from picking the nose and creates an open sore that bleeds. Another reason is a cold or allergies can make the turbinates in the nose become easily damaged and can bleed over and over. If the bleeding is coming from one side, most likely a blood vessel that can be cauterized. See an ENT. ...Read more

It was suggested from my doc to start taking a baby aspirin daily. I would get a nose bleed after 3/4 days. I'd stop and nose bleeds would stop. Start again and nose bleeds would start again. Should I continue taking....Because of the positive contri

See your Dr.: Any positive benefit of taking a baby Aspirin daily would be outweighed by the bleeding that you have. Check with your doctor to make sure that there isn't something else that could be contributing to the nasal bleeding. Most people don't bleed on that low of a dose so have it checked. ...Read more

I: I am very concerned about your symptoms. I would like you to see a neurologist and have a complete evaluation of your symptoms. Your symptoms sound somwhat like a concussion, but the duration is very concerning and you need a full neurological evaluation. If you are having this severe of symptoms then you should not be participating in any type of sports until you are cleared.

In addition, you should see your ENT doctor again to re-evaluate your persistent injury. But seeing the neurologist is most important at this time.

If you have worsening headache, visual changes, vomiting, weakness or numbness then you will have to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Nosebleeds are normal, but outta no where, my nose started bleeding a lot, more than you'd usually get or see. Is this okay? I wasn't hurt or anything.

Severe nose bleed: Nosebleeds are common. However, severe bleeding is not and be a cause for concern. You need to see an ENT who can do a good nasal exam to rule out a tumor, large blood vessel, etc. Additionally, blood work should be checked to make sure the platelet count is normal as well as the red cell count. ...Read more

Not serious: Intermittent nose bleeds are not worrisome - even if you have never had them before. I usually recommend saline mist or gel - like ChitoRhino. Using that as needed throughout the day to keep the nose moisturized can help. See an ENT if it does not improve after these simple measures. ...Read more

The short list of causes: infection; trauma-picking; allergic/nonallergic rhinitis; hypertension, medication, alcohol; inherited bleeding problems. ...Read more
