Have a head cold and my nose was bleeding alot


Q: Have a head cold and my nose was bleeding alot then it stopped and got another one later on in the day, its May 31


A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you.

Nose bleed known as Epistaxis occurs commonly due to following reasons:
1. Sinusitis
2. Nasal Polyposis
3. High Blood pressure
4. Bleeding disorders.
So, I would advise you to see an ENT Specialist. He would examine you for any Nasal Polyposis. If not found, he would get following investigations done:
1. X-ray PNS Water View
2. Platelet count
3. Bleeding and Clotting Time.
4. Check your Blood pressure.
If you are found to have sinusitis, I would advise following:
1. To do steam inhalation 4-6 times a day.
2. To take anti allergic like Levocetrizine
3. In cases, who don't respond to anti-allergic drugs, Fluticasone Nasal spray helps greatly.
Share my opinion with your doctor.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
