My nose is bleeding. How long should it take for this bleeding to subside?

About 10 minutes: A nosebleed without any underlying cause or disease should stop with firm pressure on both sides of the nose for 10 minutes by the clock (because it seems like a long time!) if it doesn't stop by then, it may be bleeding from farther back in the nose or there may be another problem...See a doctor or emergency room. ...Read more

My dad fell and hit his head and he has an open wound like an inch long but it is not bleeding, should we take him to the e.R?

My dad fell and hit his head and he has an open wound like an inch long but it is not bleeding, should we take him to the e.R?

Yes, don't delay: Even though it's not bleeding, it likely needs to be stitched-up or stapled closed, so it doesn't get infected & heals properly with a minimal scar. After that has been done, wash it gently with antibacterial soap & water daily & then cover it with neosporin anti-biotic ointment for 2 weeks. Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain if needed. He'll be fine, don't worry ;). ...Read more

My son occassionally has bleeding nose. Is this normal ? Is there a health risk in the long term?

My son occassionally has bleeding nose. Is this normal ?  Is there a health risk in the long term?

Maybe: Nosebleeds can be caused by so many things, ranging from benign things (nose picking, dry air, etc) to chronic conditions (bleeding/clotting problems) to terrible things like cancers. I would start with simple things like a humidifier and some vaseline at least twice a day. If it doesn't get better, it's time to take him to see a doctor for some tests and an examination. ...Read more

When sick (cold/flu) or stuffy, is it normal to have some chunky bits with blood when you blow your nose? As long as it doesn't keep bleeding (no nosebleed), is there no bleeding issue (ie. too thin)?

When sick (cold/flu) or stuffy, is it normal to have some chunky bits with blood when you blow your nose? As long as it doesn't keep bleeding (no nosebleed), is there no bleeding issue (ie. too thin)?

Inflamed sinus: A viral infection can affect your sinus/nasal passage and cause it to become very swollen or inflamed. If you combine that with the dry air we often encounter during the winter time (especially if our home heating system is high), then you can develop cracks in the passages - often causing a nosebleed. Saline nasal sprays, or vaseline on a Q-tip can help. Best wishes. ...Read more

My daughter banged her nose its stopped bleeding and she can breath through both nostrils should I still take her hospital?

My daughter banged her nose its stopped bleeding and she can breath through both nostrils should I still take her hospital?

Maybe: If she can breathe easily from both nostrils it may be ok. However, if the bridge of her nose is swollen or discolored and she took enough of a fall that she could have broken her nose at the base, a doc should look inside for evidence of a blood pocket in the nasal bone or a deviated septum.Both respond better to early correction within 24-48 hrs. ...Read more

Hi, I'm concerned about bleeding, for the past week, possibly longer I keep having blood in my nostrils. Not a nose bleed, but theres blood  up there.

Blood in nostrils: Do you have a cold or allergies? They cause swelling of the nasal tissue and breakdown which can lead to bleeding . Would place some vasoline inside the tip of the nose at night and in AM to mositurize, nose. Check platelets , and clotting ( PTt/PTT/INR), avoid use of ASA, NSAIDS as that may increase bleeding as can cocaine, fish oil ginger ginko, Vit E. F/U with doc/urgent care ...Read more

Hit my head about an hour ago. It was bleeding a little bit but it has stopped. I'm not dizzy. How much longer do I have to wait to sleep?

Hit my head about an hour ago.  It was bleeding a little bit but it has stopped. I'm not dizzy. How much longer do I have to wait to sleep?

Response: Sounds like more of a superficial event causing either an abrasion or laceration. Depending upon the size of the area, if large and still weeping, you may need help with closure. Not knowing more, tough to advise whether a doctor should be contacted. But based upon your description, would not prohibit sleep if you are tired. Do bandage area, as rebreeding could occur during night. ...Read more

Slip: There are two issues. Did he fall because of simple slip or did he fall because of dizziness while on the toilet? And second, did he lose consciousness when he hit his head? I would take him to an ER for a check of his head and his heart. Also, what is his blood sugar? ...Read more
