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

Some women experience nose and gum bleeding during pregnancy. Keeping well hydrated, especially with orange juice or foods high in Vitamin C, may help to strengthen your capillaries (tiny blood vessels) and reduce this bleeding.

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.
