Hey yall! Well I'm a 25 year old, none smoker, normal weight, and in good health. From time to time I will get a light nose bleed, maybe once a month or so. For the past 2 weeks however, when I blow my nose in the morning, a lot of blood and what appears to be blood clots come out. I live on the Gulf Coast and have not had much cold weather, so I haven't been running the heater much....this is what usually dries me out. Anyway, I don't have any other health problems, and this probably is no big deal, but I was just curious if anyone else had the same thing.

Sorry, can't say as I do. Do you also experience high cholesterol by chance? Blood from the nose can be an indicator of pre-stroke. One close friend has this problem...and I don't want to scare you. Do you think that the blood is caused simply by dryness?

I really don't know about high cholesterol...I don't think that its ever been checked! I doubt that I have high cholesterol though...I'm a vegetarian and I work out at least 5 days a week. I'm gonna call the doctor though and get a check up to see what's going on because my hubby is concerned. Thanks for your response!

Going to the ENT tomorrow because I'm thinking its sinus related and maybe I need to go back on Zyrtec or Flonase. I'll post and let you know!

Hey! Went good he said that I was very dry.....I did'nt think that would be the case because I have't used the heater much yet, but in any case that's what he said. So he told me to use a simple saline spray twice a day along with a little bit of vasiline on a Q-tip. He said that if it continued that I should call him because its easy to contract staph infection inside your nose. I'm hoping this will take care of the issue! Thanks so much for your concern! Smile
