Doctor :   Take care.
User :   why does it only come out of one side
Doctor :   it would stop in 15 to 20 min.
Doctor :   yes, it is possible of having it from one side.
User :   so the bleeding nose cant come from anywhere else
Doctor :   as there is nasal septum in between which doesnt allow to spread to the other side.
User :   so nose bleeds cant caome from anywhere else

Doctor :   Yes, you are right.
