Never had nosebleeds before 4 months ago. I've had several since. Same nostril. When it does bleed it's quite a bit not just spots. Is this serious?
Not serious: Intermittent nose bleeds are not worrisome - even if you have never had them before. I usually recommend saline mist or gel - like ChitoRhino. Using that as needed throughout the day to keep the nose moisturized can help. See an ENT if it does not improve after these simple measures. Read more
Nosebleed started right nostril then both started bleeding 5 minutes later im not common for nosebleeds what cud it be?

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Epistaxis: Sometimes epistaxis (nosebleed) is mechanical from picking the nose and creates an open sore that bleeds. Another reason is a cold or allergies can make the turbinates in the nose become easily damaged and can bleed over and over. If the bleeding is coming from one side, most likely a blood vessel that can be cauterized. See an ENT. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 2yo gets nose bleeds and it stops rather quickly but will be all over her face. It happens every couple months. Does it sound like bleeding prob?
Nose bleeds are: Common in childhood & often reflect irritants like dust, pollen, fumes, smoke etc that the kid is exposed to on a regular basis. These things accumulate in the nasal passages & lead to nasal rubbing when the kids are half asleep or during the day. The trauma causes small capillaries in the nose to blead. Nasal saline wash can remove the irritants & nasal saline gel helps if applied at night. Read more

But it's still a good idea for your Family Doc or even ENT to take a peek up there to make sure nothing else is going on.
