I have hht and I had a really bad nose bleed ad been exhausted all day is that normal?

Nose bleeds: Yes. I assume that when you say a 'really bad nose bleed' you mean one that took a relatively long time to stop. Nose bleeds are kind of scary, particularly if they don't stop right away or have heavy bleeding. It is in fact very difficult to lose enough blood through a single nose bleed to cause anemia or fatigue, it can happen. Usually the exhaustion is just being tired and anxious. ...Read more

Woke up with small nose bleed, dizziness, and i been tired since I woke up. What can I do to treat it?

Woke up with small nose bleed, dizziness, and i been tired since I woke up. What can I do to treat it?

See your PMD/ENT: The dizziness and nose bleed might all be related to a bad virus/sinus infection. If you have had significant bleeding from the nose, dizziness can be related to blood loss (go to er). If bleeding is very minor, try pressure on the septum to stop the bleeding, nasal saline rinses, and humidified air. Afrin (don't use more than 3 days) or claritin/benadryl can help dizziness if ears are popping. ...Read more

Little's Area: There is a plexus of vessels in the anterior septum which are fragile and prone to bleed with digital manipulation (nose picking) or even just dry air. Refrain from picking, use a nasal emollient (pharmacist can recommend), keep the air in your home humidified. That should do it. If it persists, see an ENT doc who may cauterize the area. ...Read more

They will pack the nose for her. They are generally vessels on the septum, but after all is good will need to be checked by ENT to look in the nose and make sure there is nothing else in there causing the bleed other than the vessels such as lesions. ...Read more

Is it bad to blow your nose a lot? My nose has been running & I have been blowing it a lot/ all day. Try to be gentle & no current nose bleed.

RHINITIS : It is better to treat the underlying cause. First step is to tighten up the home environment: dust mite barrier covers and pillows. HEPA FILTER remove carpet /get air ducts cleaned. Next nasal irrigation, I recommend NEILMED. If symptoms persist ZYRTEC/CLARITIN/ALLEGRA. In addition, Flonase can be helpful. If symptoms persist allergy testing and immunotherapy may help. ...Read more

My son has been nose all day yesterday. He had nose bleed in the morning and then afternoon and then again in the evening. He was nose picking in the morning when first nose bleeding came. Worry?

Probably not: Often when children pick their noses, they will get a bleed. When they pick it again, they pull off the scab and it bleeds again. Treatment is to trim fingernails short so that they can't dig in their nose (when you aren't watching). Also, putting a little lubricant like vaseline in the nose for a day or two can soften the scab until it fully heals, so it's less likely to be pulled off and bleed. ...Read more
