Little cousin picks her nose, will it change anything if she uses a tissue to pick her nose?Or will she still have the risk of getting a cold&nosebleed

Little cousin picks her nose, will it change anything if she uses a tissue to pick her nose?Or will she still have the risk of getting a cold&nosebleed

No difference likely: A tissue would be more socially acceptable, but if she is bleeding, she is overdoing things and picking with a finger or a finger buffered by tissue is not very different. 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 been taking more sodium these 3 weeks. recently i have been having 3 nosebleeds? is it too late to change? or do i already have high blood pressure?

Two Different Issues: All life based on water containing salts. Salt intake has little effect on blood pressure, thus check BP, preferably using a mercury gauge (only reliable gauge), stethoscope & someone experienced who will teach you how to read systolic (fist palpable) and diastolic (last palpable) pulse under the center of the cuff. While constantly adjusted by brain, very few consciously aware with any accuracy. ...Read more

My son gets nose bleeds when its really hot or humid, doctor has done blood work, came back normal. Says it is just a vessel, what can I do to help avoid nosebleeds?

Cautery: The overwhelming majority of nose bleeds in children arise from prominent blood vessels in the front/bottom part of the nasal septal mucosa. Coagulation with silver nitrate may help. This can be done by an ENT doctor. In cases where simple measures like this fail, electrocoagulation under general anesthesia may need to be done. This is not that uncommon. ...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

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 more

What should I do about my 4-year-old’s frequent nosebleeds?

What should I do about my 4-year-old’s frequent nosebleeds?

Probably normal: This age group is hard because they are nose pickers. Many kids have frequent nosebleeds. In this age it is tough to get the nosebleed to stop completely because of the picking. Increasing the moisturizers (humidified air, moisturizing creams like eucerin, nasal saline sprays or gels) can be helpful. But these treatments are hard for this age group. If it continues to be a problem, see your doc. ...Read more

How do you deal with nosebleeds?

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 more
