My nose is bleeding and I feel post nasal drip from it going down my throat please help.

About nosebleeds...: Nosebleeds can be due to many things that cause one of the little veins on the inside of the nose (usually the middle septum) to crack and leak temporarily. Heavy breathing in sports, hot or cold air, allergies, nose-picking, colds, a toy in the nose, etc., are some of the causes of nosebleeds. She who bleeds too often or too long can have her blood checked to see if her blood clots too slowly. ...Read more

Is it normal for someones nose to bleed almost every day? My husband is 24 and gets nosebleeds almost every day 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. ...Read more

My doctor was doing a nasal culture and I heard a crunching sound as he pushed in the swab.  I had a little bleeding. What could have made that noise?

Mild trauma: I suspect the sound was caused by dislodging a scap or mild trauma to excessively dry or infected nasal mucosa. The sound was probably amplified for you? Did the doctor even hear it? Since the bleeding resolved, would not give it another thought, except that there may be strategies to improve overall health of the nasal mucosa. ...Read more
