Epistaxis is common in everyone. 80% of people experience this in their lives. A common cause is dry, hot air like inside the home in the winter causing nasal dryness and crusting. The nasal tissue cracks and bleeds easily. Treatment includes humidification of the air, and nasal moisturizing with a variety of OTC nasal saline gels or mist spray. It's not a major health hazard, but should see MD.

Having nosebleeds every 3rd day, pimple like object inside nose. Had same thing in 2011. What could cause these??

Periodic nosebleeds

Possible staph aureus colonization and bleeding from site of infection. Are you bleeding or bruising anywhere else? If not unlikely true bleeding problem. PimPle makes me think something more local/infectious

I've had three nose bleeds today and one yesterday! Nosebleeds are not normal for me. I know it's not drugs because I don't do them. :)?

Need evaluation

Epistaxis
Usually nose bleeds are from trauma to thin superficial nasal vessels that tear with nose picking. However bleeding several times with trauma needs examination

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

Lips
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.

Would a rhinoplasty make me more susceptible to nose bleeds? I get nosebleeds occasionally. Will having a rhinoplasty increase this occurance? Should I expect a few nosebleeds after the surgery?

Not usually

Rhinoplasty should not predispose you to nosebleeds in the long term. It is common to have some bloody drainage from your nose for the first few days after surgery

Why do I smell blood, but not having a nose bleed? I fractured my nose and had an concussion about 4-5 months ago. After my recovery I returned to practice and games. It seems everyday in practice, I get elbowed in the nose but I dont get nosebleeds. What

I

I am very concerned about your symptoms. I would like you to see a neurologist and have a complete evaluation of your symptoms. Your symptoms sound somwhat like a concussion, but the duration is very concerning and you need a full neurological evaluation. If you are having this severe of symptoms then you should not be participating in any type of sports until you are cleared. In addition, you should see your ENT doctor again to re-evaluate your persistent injury. But seeing the neurologist is most important at this time. if you have worsening headache, visual changes, vomiting, weakness or numbness then you will have to be seen as an emergency.

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.

Dr. Louise Andrew answered:

How can you stop nosebleeds with nose cauterization?

Sealing the vessel

Epiglottitis
Nosebleeds are caused by a bleeding blood vessel or several small vessels, usually on the middle wall of one nostril. Cauterization means using heat, electricity or a chemical to essentially burn the edges of the vessel and seal it closed so blood won't leak anymore.
