Hi,
welcome to the health care magic forum , nose have very minute blood vessels which under the influence of any foceful action like blowing of the nose cause ruptering of its ends and consequetive bleeding also your boyfriend might be having some kind of sinus infection which is aggravating during blowing of the nose and causing head pain ,its better to blow nose smoothly or clean it off gently and have a visit to ENT specialist.
take care and get well soon !

hi
it must be very powerful blow.
nose blood vessels are very fragile so bleed easily.
u need not to worry.
press nose for time till bleeding stop .
do apply ice over nose for better control
pain will last for some time.
u need to take analgesic tab .
do rest.

For the past 2 weeks, I have been getting nose bleeds (only on the left side) (mostly in the morning after I blow my nose). Today, I woke up with a shooting pain in my ear (on the left), and a cloudy, clearish fluid has been dripping out of my left nostril a few times today. Also, the wisdom tooth on the left side feels like it is trying to cut through , which I thought to be the cause of the slight pain, shooting pain in my ear, and a little sinus irritation. Could the nose bleeds be in correlation with my bloody nose?
