Most time nose is blocked coz od allergies. I keep sniffling hard to try to open it. This causes nose pain. Is this dangerous? Can it cause nose bleeds

Possible: Have you talked to your doctor about this? Nose pain can be from contact (from swollen turbinate touching the septum), sinus infection, nasal infection etc. If you have allergic rhinitis, you are more likely to get nosebleeds especially if you blow your nose hard and often. Your condition is not life-threatening but troubling. Yet it is usually treatable. Consult your doctor. ...Read more

Can severe allergy cause eye and nasal pain and feeling of nystagmus?

Feeling of nystagmus: I think so, yes, but nystagmus is not felt, it is seen. It is important which direction it is. It will be hard for you to see, but a bystander should see it, and a video of your eyes looking forward and in four directions would help someone who cannot see you face to face.

Good luck! ...Read more

Is it bad to have nose pain when you run to much?

Is it bad to have nose pain when you run to much?

Probably not: Running a lot usually results in an adrenergic response of the nasal mucosa. That is, the small blood vessels in the nasal mucosa constrict (narrow) to allow more air in to your nose. The discomfort or pain is probably related to more environmental air hitting the nasal lining and the free nerve endings being irritated by the increased volume of incoming air. So it is not bad. ...Read more

My 5yo fell & bit her lip (hardwood flr). After sitting at table, I noticed swelling on her nose. Pain on touch. When do I decide it needs doc eval?

Screen her function: You can do some basic screening to decide on an eval. If your kid can breath easily thru both nostrils (gently compress sides) its likely ok. If not, a blood clot can be forming in the middle bone/cartlidge of the nose or the root bone may be deviated & a simple repositioning within a day or so prevents future pbs. Call your regular doc & describe what you find. ...Read more
