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

Is it normal for someones nose to bleed almost every day? My husband is 24 and gets nosebleeds almost everyday 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 son is 12 and has had a half dozen nose bleeds in the last week. He woke up this morning with his nose bleeding. His nose has never ever bled b4.

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 more

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

Epistaxis: Great decision to stop using e-cig. You're doing yourself a great favor. As for your nose bleeds (epistaxis), as long as they stop, you're most likely fine. 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. In meantime, use spare non-vaping time to eat right, exercise regularly & get enough sleep. Wrap it up each & every time. ...Read more

Nosebleed guide: Most nose bleeds arise from trauma to the thin lining overlying the sensitive nasal cartilage. This trauma can be from a tissue, a finger, a knuckle, an arm swipe, etc. When you have a nosebleed, blow your nose, then pinch and hold for 5min. Don't peak. Then don't touch don't wipe. Don't put tissue in the nose to check it. This pulls the clot you just made off and it bleeds again. Hands off works. ...Read more

Maybe: Esophageal bleeding could theoretically come out the mouth or the nose, which could look like a nose bleed. Depending on the cause of the esophageal bleeding (ie a bleeding disorder?), that could predispose you to nose bleeds. Esophageal bleeding is generally something that needs medical attention though so please discuss with your doctor if you aren't already. ...Read more

Nosebleeds: One way to avoid nose bleeds is to use nasal saline, a sterile salt water solution, frequently. It keeps the mucous membranes in the nose moistened and can keep you from getting nose bleeds. If you get them frequently you might want to see an ENT physician. Sometimes they can treat the vessels in the nose so that they do not bleed. ...Read more

I smell blood in my 2 year old's nose. Over the past week she has had 2 nose bleeds and she fell from her bike prior to this. Is her nose bleeding int?

Not likely: If her nose were bleeding internally it would appear in her mouth. She probably has some rawness that may be causing the smell. Also make sure she doesn't have a foreign object stuck in her nose. Use a salt water nose spray to get out dried blood and also help prevent future nose bleeds ...Read more

Is it natural for your ears to bleed when your nose bleeds? My ears weren't bleeding as bad as my nose, but I just wondered if I should be concerned.

Is it natural for your ears to bleed when your nose bleeds? My ears weren't bleeding as bad as my nose, but I just wondered if I should be concerned.

Bleeding ears: Bleeding from both the ears and the nose at the same time is unusual. There are a couple of instances in which you could see both. First is if you have a hole or a perforation in your eardrum. When the nose bleeds, you would also have to get that blood up through the eustachian tube and into the ear. I haven't see this very often. Second is if there is bleeding from the ear canal at same time. ...Read more
