More often Nose bleeds subsides when one employs methods such as pinching the nose while breathing through the mouuth for few minutes and also applying ice to the base of the nose forehead and chicks.. However, in an event where the bleeding persists, you must seek medical advice as soon as possible. If it is the first time in your life that you bleed, your doctor may investigate you for common diseases associated with nose Hypertension.


summer is a very exciting part of thec year here in the Philippines...but then it summer really worry me a lot. i am allergic to fumes, dust, unpleasant odor, etc...and I can't stand the heat, I get nosebleed several times until summer ends, usually I get nosebleed when I have fever or not feeling well or about to have's so expensive to put our air conditioner on for even half a day...what to do?

A couple of years back, we got a free sample of a nosebleed treatment. I don't remember what it was called, but it was basically a reddish-brown powder that was applied up the nose with a little Q-tip like stick. It worked amazingly well, but I have been unable to locate it since. Has anyone heard of this stuff or seen a website that might have it? My son is now 14 and still has horrible nosebleeds with no effort involved. I would hate to have to subject him to cauterization. There must be something out there to help. Thanks.


It is a series of products to aid in bleeding, with a specific product for nosebleeds. It says you can't order it online but can search for retail carriers of it. I'm gonna go try and find some for myself a.s.a.p!
