Constant nose bleeds can be an indication of something serious, but since you have a cold, it's probably just cold-related trauma. Be sure to keep your nose moist with a saline spray (such as Ocean spray). Dryness can make you prone to nose bleeds.

Also, take care when blowing your nose. Although it may feel like you need to blow really hard, this often doesn't help, and will just aggrevate the nose bleeds. Use a nasal decongestant to help loosen things up, too.

Re: constant nose bleeds?

I agree with the above. If you mean "constant" as in round the clock nose bleeds, I'd get it checked out. Although winter time is a common time of year for nose bleeds with the dry air in most homes. My kids and I get them on occassion during this time of year.

Re: constant nose bleeds?

Sounds as if you should see a doctor as soon as possible. Try and stay calm and let us know how things are going. Part of me wonders if you're picking at something that shouldn't be picked or sticking your finger too far up and aggravating your sinuses.

Re: constant nose bleeds?

cmw my dad just told me that him and his grandfather both had a weak blood vessel in their nose so i think it might of passed onto me as they used to get lots of nose bleeds. and i just havnt really had this before so its just starting today
