Bloody nose babe
Yes indeed, babe, it’s time to get yourself to your doctor for a full check-up. Getting a nosebleed every so often is typical and generally nothing to worry about, but more frequent nosebleeds—more than once per week—can be a sign of a more serious problem.
What causes nosebleeds?
Dry air is the most common cause of a nosebleed, though colds and allergies can be culprits, too. Frequent nosebleeds can be caused by chronic colds and sinus problems. A visit to your doctor could shed some light on why you’re constantly getting them, as well as lead to potential solutions.
For now, keep in mind…
After you stop a nosebleed, it’s really important that you don’t strain the thin tissue inside your nose any more than necessary. Heavy lifting, strenuous activities and nose-blowing should be avoided for a full day.
