    Just got out of the shower and noticed loads of blood coming from my nose. On closer inspection I'm actually bleeding from inside my nose (it's not a cut or anything). I haven't done anything unsual recently. I blew my nose in the shower but I always do. I got drunk last night, but again that's a regular thing, and it's also pretty damn hot, but it was yesterday. I'm just a bit worried cos it looked like that thing off Nip/Tuck where the woman took an overdose of cocaine. Any ideas? Medics?? Thanks

    Could be a whole host of things.

    If it occurs again, then go to the doctors. If not, then perhaps it's a one-off.

    It's usually easier to get nosebleeds when it's hot or when I get out of the shower. Keep your head down and squeeze the soft bone area in the middle of your nose NOT the bottom bit. I know some people say hold your head back but PLEASE don't because you can choke on your own blood. Also, breathe with your mouth.

    If it's just a nosebleed and it stops after a while, I'm pretty sure it's not much. But if it occurs frequently, go to a GP and have a checkup on it.

    I think it's probably because of the heat, I used to get nosebleeds all the time in summer when I was younger - but thankfully it's stopped in recent years. If it's a once off or doesn't happen frequently, don't worry about it, but if you're concerned see your doctor

    When it does bleed do exactly what eurasianfeline says, should usually dry up in less than 10/15 minutes tops. If it goes on for longer than 20 minutes, something's up.

    Best thing to do is put a cold (wet) cloth in your neck. Keep running it under the cold water tap 'cos it gets warm very quick lol but it helps it stop very very fast.

    Woa, thankfully that's never happened to me. Funnily enough I only used to get nosebleeds during times where I didn't want to be where I was - the purrrfect sickie excuse! Good luck, I hope your nose stays blood free!

    Never tried that, though it sounds like a good way of clotting the blood

    Okay, maybe not, it's just the heat I expect . It was very hot here earlier.

    Another way of dealing with them is to suck an ice lolly. Works really well, and any excuse for an ice lolly is a good one. xx

    my nose bled for about days once. was so disgusting. was after surgery tho and i had to have like a bandage to catch the blood... lovely stuff. it's a real problem afterwards (just all bloody and dirty) there's a sea water solution nasal spray you can get from boots and it cleans it up like a treat.

    Bang on.
    After all, when its hot your superficial arteries dilate (and so you get big raised blood vessels on your arms, feet, head etc....and nose) whihc makes it more likely you'll get a nose bleed
    cold flannel will cause constriction of the vesssels so slow the bleeding.
    dunno what the sea salt solution does, but personally wouldnt wanna squirt it up my nose!
    uck!
