Nosebleeds: Cold humidification can sometimes constrict blood vessels and stop bleeding, like applying an ice pack. Nosebleeds can be caused by a blood vessel that is close to the surface inside your nostril and may need to be cauterized. Not sure why you had a CT scan unless your sinuses were being evaluated. Try gently swabbing with vaseline on a swab to keep the insides of the nares moist. ...Read more

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.

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.

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.

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 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
