Summer Nosebleed

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I searched and saw some stuff about nosebleeds here, but unlike most there, I've NEVER had a nosebleed before, and usually the dry nosebleeds come during the winter. Went to bed last night with a tissue up there, and woke up with what felt like a dry booger...well after blowing, realized it was not a booger, but a scab starting to form (I guess). Tried Aquafor, now have some triple antibiotic stuff up there...any other sage advice? This sucks.

I assume trying to ignore that feeling of dry snot is best and just letting it stay there?

Drink more water, could be due to dehydration in the summer.

I drink AT LEAST 150 fl oz a day...sometimes over 200, can't imagine it being dehydration...peeing non-stop

I don't know if this will help, but I use a neti pot (google it) and saline nasal solution when I fly to keep my nose hydrated.

bty, don't you play hockey? never had a nosebleed? you must be really good at defending yourself.

lol, those stop after getting the nose packed (look at my WAYWT pics and note the nose...I'm an expert)...

Just got back from the MD, carterized it...not bad, but the tube up the nose and into the sinuses SUCKED

Now I feel like my upper nostril is swollen from the "tube" procedure...but at least the bleeding stopped...how long should the part of my nose be swollen for after the nostril rape?

Uh...did you irritate your nose a lot prior to the nosebleed?

Do you have air conditioning on? That sucks the water/humidity out of the room.

You went to the doctor because you got a nosebleed? Isn't that a little...excessive?

^^^thats what I thought...I never get them, but it bled for about 36 hours, figured should call em and see what was up. It just wouldn't stop.

Probably a good idea if the bleeding wasn't stopping.. Hope it clears up for you..

Gotcha. Didn't realize it was a 36 hour nosebleed. I would have done the same thing.

For quick nosebleeds, a friend recommended a squirt of sinus headache nosespray (Afrin, etc.). It works and starts clotting almost immediately, but I don't know about the long-term effects (though if you're getting them often enough to worry, I guess you should see a doctor anyway).
