  • get a blood test FBC (full blood count) and LFT (liver function test)make sure that you get and keep photo copies of the tests, if you are paying, you have legal right to them.Then do a bleeding time test, toureque on arm and small cuts in arm and timing the clotting time.Check for Aplastic Aneamia, treated with drugs. The test a a bone marrow biopsy to check marrow function.Don't panic, get copies of all the tests for future medical opinions.good luck.

  • I was like that when I was a kid. The doctor said my nerves were too thin and easily erupted. If someone tweaked my nose a bit it bled. If I went out in the sun and it was too hot it bled. I took some vitamins or meds for the nerves (I'm sorry I don't remember what they are at all since as i told you I was juat a kid then) and it got better in time (like years). By the time I was in fourth grade my nose didn't bleed as much. Now I can't even remember the last time it bled. DO check for the other stuff people suggested here but as your doctor about the possibilty of you having something as simple as sensitive veins.:rolleyes:I do hope it is something like this since the other options they suggested sound pretty serious.

  • The cold dry weather and running the heat will dry up your nasal membranes. Try using vaseline or neosporine inside each nostil, especially before bed. If I do this everyday it really minmizes my nose bleeds.Jackie

Somebody please help me out.~MIKE~place a drop or two of lemon juice in the nostril that is bleeding. put a pinch of salt in half a glass of water and spray it in the nose. dip a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar apply it onbleeding nose helps bring bleeding to a stop. these are all home remedies. which you should try after nothing else seems to work by pinching the nose. do not hold your head back when having a nose bleed. the more fluids you put into you system the better off you are cold days and dry heat leads to dry noses which leads to nose bleeds. look around the area you are in when the nose bleed occurs. is there anything in the area that you may be allergic to. allergys can cause nose bleeds. you can also cut down on nose bleeds by using petroleum jelly caster oil vitmin e orzinc oxide insert a small amount in the nostril on a daily basis will cut down on nose bleeds. take a warm shower and breathe in the warm moist air will help prevent nose bleeds. eat more foods high in vitmin c will help strengthen the membranes causing less nose bleeds. turning down the heat at night not only helps save on electric but it also keeps the air from being so dry which will help lesson the amount of nose bleeds. good luck
