If it is still bleeding, apply pressure again and take to an Emergency Room or Urgent Care. If it is stopped, apply a nonadherent dressing/bandage and clean it twice a day with mild soap and water. If there is any sign of infection, see a doctor. ...Read more

66 m fell hit his head. Now bleeding has stop and there is a pool of blood in the front right lob, he remains unresponsive. Why is he not waking up?

Head trauma: Head trauma can be lethal, and in cases of survival, the course is unpredictable. Most likely, this 66 year-old male will recover as the subdural hematoma resolves. It is very difficult to predict how intense is the damage to the midbrain, and how quickly he will recover and restore his superior functions. It is also very important that his vital signs are maintained stable during his recovery. ...Read more

After a hot shower or blowing my nose, my nose seems to always bleed. It stops after holding my head up. Is that normal?

After a hot shower or blowing my nose, my nose seems to always bleed. It stops after holding my head up. Is that normal?

Can be: This should be checked out by your doctor. Wintertime air is cold and dry and dries the skin inside the nose making it easier to crack and bleed. Most often that can be treated with moisture, like ayr nose gel applied twice a day. A humidifier in your room or added to your furnace could help too. However, there could be other issues that should be checked out first by your physician. ...Read more
