Hello Doctor, my son 4 years old suffered from nose bleeding 2-3 days back. Which humidifier do you suggest warm or cool?

Humidification: Is the goal, and both methods will achieve this. Warm or cool mist is generally a matter of preference and availability. Scald injuries are an issue with some warm mist humidifiers and should be used with caution in homes with small children and pets.

Cool mist or warm mist humditifier is best which one? , sometimes I have nose bleeds. I've seen a specialist I had a cat scan that was normal.

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.

Can your nose heal from picking it? Nosebleeds are annoying! Can heat or being sick cause your nose to bleed as well? What'a the best way to stop it?

Nosebleeds: One of the most common causes of nosebleed is poking at your nostril. Apply firm pressure to stop bleeding, with or without a plug of facial tissue. Increasing humidity inside your home can help as well.

Last 2 months I have been getting lots of nose bleeds. I use cpap with humidifier and run a personal humidifier. Is there a concern 4 cancer or othe?

Last 2 months I have been getting lots of nose bleeds. I use cpap with humidifier and run a personal humidifier. Is there a concern 4 cancer or othe?

Not likely: CPAP often causes nosebleeds because of dry air, and trauma from the high pressures used by the machine to keep your airway open. This is common and usually easily dealt with. Cancer is not a likely cause.

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.

Cauterize: This sounds very disruptive! Most likely its a brittle vessel high up in the nose. See an ENT who can cauterize it and check for anything suspicious up there.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nose bleeding: The most common reason is trauma. Other reasons are allergies causing dryness in you nose, making it is for bleeding. Using humfier and applying neosporine to the inside of your nose will help

Blood work: It could be the result of a cold or infection or something more. His doc can do some blood work to see if your friend has difficulty clotting and help if needed. That help could be medicine or diet modification.

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.

Can you also get nose bleeds from esophageal bleeding?

Can you also get nose bleeds from esophageal bleeding?

Maybe: Esophageal bleeding could theoretically come out the mouth or the nose, which could look like a nose bleed. Depending on the cause of the esophageal bleeding (ie a bleeding disorder?), that could predispose you to nose bleeds. Esophageal bleeding is generally something that needs medical attention though so please discuss with your doctor if you aren't already.

My migraine caused my nose to bleed. If I am to get a nose bleed my nose bleeds from the front but today It bleed from the back.?

My migraine caused my nose to bleed. If I am to get a nose bleed my nose bleeds from the front but today It bleed from the back.?

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.
