This is not likely to cause a cold unless picking with a hand that has been in direct contact with somebody else with a cold. This is caused by a virus introduced into the nose directly. ...Read more

I have a small lump in my brain. I get it MRI every couple months. It hasnt changed dr says its fine. I have been to a eye dr I am still experencing vision problems and nose bleeds
A : A mass inside the brain or the skull can be monitored by MRI to look for changes that could cause problems. Symptoms depend on where the mass is. Vision problems could be caused by mass effect on the optic nerves (the nerves that see), the nerves that help move the eyes, or parts of the brain involved in vision. Nosebleeds would be an uncommon symptom of a mass inside the brain or skull. Even if nosebleeds and vision problems are not related to a mass inside the brain or skull, they are important problems and should be brought to the attention of a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Stop them, eval. why: Nosebleeds occur for a variety of reasons. In children, 90% of nose bleeds occur in the front near the nostrils, which is why pinching the nose helps stop it, since pressure is applied. In adults, it can also be posteriorly, so pinching helps in fewer cases. Lean head forward, not backward, so you do not swallow the blood. May need scope to evaluate for nasal mass and blood work to check if okay. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
