I'm 15 and I used to get heavy nosebleeds for no reason and I had my nose cauterized to help stop the nosebleeds and it worked. Also it may be due to high blood pressure best go see your doctor about it

My mom has had profuse faucet force nosebleeds for over a year . Often 2-3 times a day often losing 3 cups of blood each bleed. She had a defective hip replaced a few months after the bleeding began because of cobalt and metal found in her blood. She has seen 5 ENTs, had her nose cortorized numerous time with no resolve, a month later she had an inpatient test where they placed a tube in her groin to look for open vessels. They closed up something in her nose that looked odd but her bleeds came back a week later, full force. She had surgery a week and a half ago again(a week early to avoid a blood transfusion) and this time they opened her nose, closed arteries and vessels inside and behind the eye. She is bleeding again. I m not a doctor but don t feel it s nose related. Doctors cannot seem to remedy this and we are seeking some help or a reference. Her blood is good, no high blood pressure, no clotting issues or thinning issues, no tumors etc. she is 64 and otherwise healthy but clearly frustrated and scared that no one can find a cure. Her bleeding is so profuse that she fills a sandwich size ziplock bag within a half hour and ends up choking up blood. Please help, any suggestions or recommended specialist would be much appreciated.

My 4 year old son has had two nosebleeds in the past few days. He had acute ITP when he was 13 months old, and I can t get the image of the kids in the pediatric oncology center where he was treated out of my mind. Is this worth a visit to the doctor for a blood test, or should I wait a few more days?

I ve been having nosebleeds approximately every second day, sometimes two or three times a day, for the past month. Only my left nostril bleeds, and when it does it lasts from 3 to 10 minutes. This has been accompanied by headaches and fatigue. I ve tried a humidifier, but it hasn t done anything to help with the nosebleeds. I m 17, female, and I have no allergies to anything. Any advice?
