Welcome to Healthcare Magic,
As per your query you and your grand mother have bleeding from a pore on the nose which lasted for around 5-8 minutes.
Now in normal course of bleeding it should stop within a time frame of 3-5 minutes. In your case it lasted for around 5-8 minutes, which is bit longer period.
This suggest that thre may be some abnormality in the clotting of the blood. This can be a usual process in general but should never be taken lightly. In you and your grand mother' s case it could be because of some medications if you both are taking such as pain killers off and on. This can also be due to lack certain vitamins
in the body.
Even then you should go for 3 simple tests of bleeding time
, clotting time and platelet counts. If these are normal then no need of worry, but if these are abnormal then should meet a doctor who can further investigate and guide you accordingly.
In between kindly increase the amount of vitamin C
containing fruits in your diet.
Hope to have provided the helpful informations regarding your problem.
With good health wishes"
