Why i am getting nose bleeds suddenly ?

I have never suffered from nose bleeds - but since this morning off & on I have had quite severe ones - lasting for an hour or more. Have done all the all the things to try and stop them and they do stop eventually but start again after about twenty mins ??

Thanks for writing to us.
Recurrent nose bleeds do require a nasal packing to stop the bleeding. You need to rule out the causes responsible like high blood pressure, dry nasal mucosa, rhinitis, bleeding disorders, local nasal mass, etc. after an examination from an ENT specialist.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
