Is it normal to unexpectedly have 3 nosebleeds in a week?

Nose bleeds common: Most of the time nose bleeds in kids are due to dry air +/- nose picking or rubbing, and not letting the fragile skin in the nose heal between insults. Preventive- try vaseline or neosporin to lining of nose.
Try with next bleed: blow nose fully to get out clots + mucous, hold nose firmly just below the hard part for 5min (don't tip head back), then if stopped-don't touch! ...Read more

I'm 23 weeks pregnant now and have been getting nose bleeds once or twice a day. Is this normal?

Not normal, nor rare: This is not very rare, however it is not a normal pregnancy symptom and merits further investigation! Women with nosebleeds are more likely than others to suffer severe hemorrhage during delivery and require blood transfusion. A complete blood count and coagulation panel should be checked to exclude coagulopathy or thrombocytopenia. Von willebrand factor deficiency has to be considered! See mfm! ...Read more

Nosebleeds: It is not normal to have a nosebleed while breast feeding you should. Have an ENT doctor check your nose and cauterize the bleeding spot. In the meantime use a fingernail dollop of Bacitracin or polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) in each nostril 4 to 5 times a day until the nose stops crusting. Do not pick the crusts let them slough naturally. I do not think the medicine for your scar is affecting the nose. ...Read more

Is it normal to nosebleed anytime even while in the middle of sleep? What is the indication of this? He is 36 yrs. Old. Is there a prob. W/ his blood? Help.

Many possibilities: Recurrent nose bleeds can be caused by many things, ranging from too dry air, no friable veins in the nose, to problems in clotting (low platelets, for examples). If this occurs often, I would try to have him evaluated. A good physical exam can look at his nasal mucosa, and if warranted, some simple blood work can also be performed. ...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

My son has been put on steroids to clear his chest he is two yrs old but since taking these he has has three nose bleeds is this a symptom?

Nasal allergies, irritants, or poorly humidified environments all can irritate the capillaries in the delicate nasal membranes & kids often wake up on a bloody pillow having had a bleed in the night. Smoke from a fire, fumes, fragrances, etc are other aggravating factors. ...Read more
