Brief Answer:
Use saline nasal drops to keep nose most.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HCM
I have gone through your query, you are suffering from epistaxis.

Trauma to the nose is a very common cause of nosebleeds. Nosebleeds can be caused by trauma to the outside of the nose from a blow to the face, or trauma to the inside of the nose from nose picking. Other causes include exposure to warm, dry air for prolonged periods of time, nasal and sinus infections,

I would suggest you to use saline nasal drops 3-4 times everyday to keep the nose moist, also you can apply petroleum jelly over the inside part of the nose, only at the tip.
I would also advice you to avoid expose to dust and smoke, avoid sleeping directly under the fan, If using AC ensure the temperature is between 27-28 degree Celsius. Drink plenty of water. These are preventive measures.

When it occurs, local application of pressure ie pinching the nose to stop bleeding, should be done.

You should find with the preventive measures suggested.

Hope this helps.
Take care.

Hi. I am 47 years old and have been having irregular periods for the last 2-3 years. Mostly they don t come on time or don t come at all. When they do come, it is very light. This last time I was about 2 weeks late. I started the period and have now been bleeding for approx. 10 days. The flow is light enough but I have never lasted this long. Is this normal? Thanks.
