Dear jazzy
you are suffering from epistaxis where in there can be recurrent nasal bleeding. Various reasons can be assigned to it and it can also call for nasl packing in severe cases. Look for if you are hypertensive or diabetic then line of treatment may vary a bit. Avoid pricking of nose with fingers if you do so. prevent dry crust formation in nose, donot move out in sun and donot over expose yourself to heat. Keep your head covered while moving out. Use ice pack on nose when bleeding starts and spill water on your head and fore head to check bleeding. It calls for increasing your immunity. I am a herbalist so i recommend you to have indian goose berry regularly, rose petals from non grafted roses[ the one used to make rose water] mixed with sugar are used internally and very fine powder of coral is used to prevent recurrance. this will also increase your immunity. wish you perfect health.

Hi Jane and Jazzy,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
This forum is a general community forum, it is free for everyone and you need not pay for this. Ask a doctor forum is indeed a paid one, as the patient and doctor discuss regarding a particular condition in detail till the former's doubts are cleared and more so it will be answered by a very experienced doctor. Regarding your query over here, the chronic nasal bleed can be indeed secondary to infection of the nose (sinusitis), benign neoplasm called nasopharyngeal angiofibroma, deviated nasal septum, etc. To rule out all these conditions and to zero in on one, it requires a thorough examination by a good ENT specialist. Till then try using saline nasal drops, drink plenty of water. Any more doubts you are welcome.
Take care.
