Have a concern re: two recent incidents involving nose bleeds.  Was cleaning my left side when blood came gushing out rapidly... Rather than the usual slow drip.  Have not had any head trauma or injury.  I do have lots of stress taking care of my aging fa

Epistaxis. : Stress is unlikely to be the reason for this nose bleed; it may prolong the nose bleed if associated with long standing high blood pressure, but does not cause it on its own. Most common cause is nose picking. Many local and systemic conditions can cause nose bleed. If it persists, see your fp or ent. ...Read more

I'm having nose bleed after head injury but not hit in nose, normal?

I'm having nose bleed after head injury but not hit in nose, normal?

Depends: "Head injury" doesn't mean the same thing to doctors as it means to laypeople. But practically speaking, whenever you have an unexplained nosebleed you should have it checked out. The blood may be coming from behind your nose. And even if it's coming FROM your nose, the nasal septum is supplied by 3 arteries, so whatever the cause, you can lose a lot of blood if it's not controlled. ...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

What would cause a sharp pain in my head than follow by a nose bleeds has only happened 2 times in the last 6 months

Epistaxis : Epistaxis or bloody noses can be caused by a variety of things and is worth having it looked into by your primary care doctor or an ear, nose and throat doctor (otolaryngologist). Seeing that your nosebleeds follow a sharp headache, you should also be evaluated for high blood pressure since this can lead to nosebleeds that are difficult to stop. In the meantime, here are a few nose bleed tips. If your nose starts to bleed, pinch the soft part of your nose below the bridge, not the bridge to stop the bleeding. Now keep pinching for 5 minutes. Set a timer or look at a watch because it will feel like forever. And no peeking! that will stop 95% of all nosebleeds. ...Read more

My fiance had his nose cauterized 9 months ago and has had three nosebleeds in the last 24 hours... on the same side... what should we do?

Epistaxis: Go back to the ENT again. Sometimes it takes more than one cauterization to completely resolve the problem. Or, in some cases there is a new area on the same side causing problems. Maybe he has predisposing factors for bleeding like medications, hereditary coagulation problems, or anatomic issues like a deviated septum. ...Read more

I have a cold and have to blow my nose every thirty seconds.Now I have nosebleeds that last ten minutes. What should I do?

Blow more gently: The safest treatment for nasal problems with a cold is saline (salt water) nasal spray. This will also help resolve nose bleeds. You might also use an otc decongestant nasal spray for no more than three days. Nose bleeds are most effectively stopped by putting your thumb and forefinger on either side of the nose at the place where is goes from being hard to being soft. Hold it for five minutes. ...Read more
