Ill just start by saying that im not a coke head. Having said that, I have a nose bleed pretty much every day, or every other day. I dont know if 'dry weather' really has to do with it or is just a good way of saying, 'I dont know', but what do you say about it? Anyone here have this situation and it turned out to be more then it is? I live in New York, smoke, and the air and smoke are the only two things I can think of that would cause nose bleeds (possibly?) if not for some underlying, internal medical problem. Cant really say when I noticed them starting, but hasnt been long. Probably just a couple of months.

I had this problem years ago and it was exactly the same, nose bleeds every day or every other day for years...

Turned out I had high Blood Pressure, since I have taken medication for it, I have been fine. I can't remember when I had my last nose bleed now ...

Don't stress too much though, coz stress NEVER fixes anything ... These days things like hypertension etc. are quite common due to our surroundings etc ... Get to the doctors and get it all checked out ...

Seeing a doctor is the best way to go.

Could be allergies, infection, sinusitis, an environmental irritant, dry air... and the list goes on and on.

Try sleeping with a humidifier in your room. Dry air can cause nose bleeds. Also, you may want to take a bit of antibacterial ointment/Vaseline on a q-tip and lightly coat the inside of your nose for added moisture.

I've had this problem ever since I was a young boy. My father has it too, the docs say it's hereditary. They say my problem is that the vein in my nose (usually the left nostril) is rather thin.

One option is to cauterize the vein which I'm told will thicken up the vein wall. For me the bleeding is worse in the winter in and caused by dry air. In my office I now have a humidifier which I just leave on low all day. This was the first winter with the humidifier and I have far less nosebleeds than usual. Probably only 4 or 5 this entire year so far
. Usually they happen 2 days in a row.

YMMV but I'd try the humidifier before doing anything too drastic.

When I was a child I'd have a nose bleed every day and then it kind of stopped after I was 10, still don't know why but every once in a while I'll have a really bad nose bleed.

Hold a pin underneath your nose and apply pressure for about 5 to 10 minutes and see if that helps, it helped me.

Hmm. I will try that. Sounds like a good idea. Although sometimes they happen when im showering and I take really, very hot showers, which is what gave me the impression in the first place that the air is probably not the problem


Hearing that it might be high blood pressure though alleviates some of the stress knowing then its not cancer of the brain or something especially life threatening. But I guess its off to the doctors for me this week =[

What do you mean by 'hold a pin under your nose and apply pressure'? This sounds masochistic. o.O

Someone said it, but a humidifier at night and in your living space during the day. A small one at work if possible. Smoking dries membranes. Not condemning, just saying. Hydration - proper amount of water drank per day. Also check a local health food store for Xylitol-infused nasal spray which helps keep things moist.

So having a diet of lots and lots of coffee, very little water, and lots of smoking can cause the nose bleeds?

The hot shower water might be "loosening the scab" so to speak.

Caffeine dehydrates. Too little sleep. Alcohol. The body is mostly water - take H20 away, especially in dry winter air, throw in an open orifice for the air/smoke to dry out, and flow city.

Smoking coupled with allergies and chronic sinusitis could be a good bet.Do you get headaches or a lot of post nasal drip? Go get a nasal CT to see if you have any polyps.

If you already have chronic sinus issues, anything that dehydrates you thickens your mucus and can complicate things leading to blockages and infections.
