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

Severe nose bleed: Nosebleeds are common. However, severe bleeding is not and be a cause for concern. You need to see an ENT who can do a good nasal exam to rule out a tumor, large blood vessel, etc. Additionally, blood work should be checked to make sure the platelet count is normal as well as the red cell count. ...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

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 don't get nosebleeds. Wha

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. ...Read more

See your Dr.: Any positive benefit of taking a baby Aspirin daily would be outweighed by the bleeding that you have. Check with your doctor to make sure that there isn't something else that could be contributing to the nasal bleeding. Most people don't bleed on that low of a dose so have it checked. ...Read more

See a doctor: Frequent or chronic nosebleeds are a problem. They may be associated with the migraines, as migraines are thought to induced by blood flow issues, but regardless they should be addressed. If you have a migraine doctor, see her/him. If not, see your physician. Either should be able to point you in the right direction for proper diagnosis of the cause of the 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
