For nasal bleeding, try to apply a pressure on the tip of your nose for 10-15minutes ...Read more

I have mild allergies, blow my nose several times each day. Why do I get light headed, almost dizzy, every time?

Hay fevers symptoms: What you describe seems to be consistent with acute rhinitis. If your nose and eye itch and you also sneeze, it might be due to allergic rhinitis.

Stop blowing : Not a good idea to blow your nose if you are getting vertigo (the sensation of motion). It could mean a small potential leak or irritation involving the connection between the middle ear and the inner ear. Wipe or sniff but hold off on blowing. If the vertigo lasts get to an ENT doctor right away. ...Read more
