The last few months my nose bleed pretty often and i'm not sure what causes it. Some people said maybe it caused by change of weather or stress. But i'm not in stress condition. Can someone tell me what other reasons that might cause this and what I should do? Is it really a normal condition? Thank you.
I don't know if this will help, but my daugher has been getting nose bleeds off and on for the last few years. This last april we made an appt to have her tonsils and adnoids taken out and the Dr. Asked us if she had allergies. We told her no but he said that was why he believed she had been having nose bleeds. He also showed me the back of her nose and was saying something about the vessels in the back of her nose. Have you been checked for allergies?
I just had the same problem with my nose. Ask your doctor if he can check for any broken vessels or small abrasions in your nose. I had an open cut in my nose , caused just by blowing my nose. He cotterized it. Thats when the doctor will chemically seal it so it wont bleed anymore. Ill tell you now that it hurts, but its worth it. I havnt had another nose bleed since. They gave me pain pills so they should do the same for you to. Hope this helps.
I have had the same problem. I used to get nose bleeds so bad that I would lose so much blood I would pass out. My doctor told me that the blood vessels in my nose are really close to the surface. So any bit of irritation such as dryness in the air like in winter can cause it. He cauterized my nose. Boy that hurt.....But like someone said before its well worth it!!! That was about 3 yrs ago and I haven't had real serious nose bleed since. Ive probably only had 3 nosbleds in 3 yrs. For cauterization there are two methods. One is painless....He takes what looks like a long match stick and rubs it around in your nose. That didn't work for me though. He had to stick needles in my nose to numb it, then he stuck a metal tube up my nose which sparked and would burn the blood vessels so they wouldn't bleed anymore. But like I said its painful but worth it. I'd try the "match stick" method first.
I am 24 years old now and I have had my left nostril cauterized about a dozen times since i was 8 due to an exposed blood vessel. Usually my ENT does a cheical burn but last week he used a little zapping wand. I am quite accustomed to the pain of the procedure but I was not prepared for the adverse side effects. I had a black spot on the side of my nostril for a couple of days that went away after picking at it... but this morning I noticed a large red bump inside my nostril where I had been burned. Not sure what to make of it now.
nose keeps bleeding also after ent cauterized it was so painful they spray something as to numb it which did not work for me during this procedure i ended up with ear,tooth,head and nose ache and still suffering with nose bleeding too scare to go back for follow-up and my nose has not gotten better the ent doctor said he was wruff so i will not have to return
