Hello,

Thank you for sharing your problem with me here.

With the history of fall on the face with nasal bleeding, there would be some contusion of the tissues of the face and even facial bones. There could also be collection of blood or fluid into the sinus. So you can try an ice pack over the swollen areas and steam inhalation for a day.

If you do not get better in 24 hours, it would be better to visit the doctor.

I hope this answers your query. Please revert to me if you have any doubt.

Regards

Sometimes I get the taste of blood in the back of my throat and on a more rare occasion I ll burp and taste a bit of blood or it may be iron. I had nosebleeds a lot when I was young but not so much now. Sometimes I get the taste from strenuous activity, sometimes from nothing at all. What could be the problem?

Yes I have been taking Aleve for joint pain and it was very effective but recently I have been getting nose bleeds. I am thinking this has to do with the Aleve so I have stopped taking it. Does MegaRed joint care have anything in it that will also cause my nose to bleed?
