I suffer from nosebleeds, don’t know what to do anymore?
I have been having nosebleeds recently. I have had about six nose bleeding episodes in the last 7 months and in the past 5 days my nose was bleeding badly. Today it stopped but I am really worried. Thinking if it starts bleeding again I will go the ER. please tell me what can be the cause of these nosebleeds I get? thanks in advance.

Thanks for your question,
Here are some common causes for nosebleeds (epistaxis)
1. If you are on a anticoagulant or blood thinner medication like Coumadin (warfarin), your nosebleeds may be caused by this.
2. Hypertension is also a known contributory factor to epistaxis.
3. Dry air — when your nasal membranes are dry you are more susceptible to bleeding and infections.
Your doctor will probably request you consult an ENT and undergo an Ear, Nose and Throat Examination.
If the actual exact spot of the bleeding can be located, a cautery ablation of the blood vessel can be done.
Avoid blowing your nose as much as possible and inserting your finger into your nose. OTC nose drops can also help.
Your ENT doctor is the right professional to help you with your problem.
Im not a doctor but NSAID’s can cause these. Are you taking these?
