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 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
