Question Nose ulcers?

Hello, I was reading through the criteria to diagnose lupus and I noticed it said nose or mouth ulcers and I was just wondering what a nose ulcer would be-would it cause your nose to bleed all the time?

Re: Nose ulcers?

Hi Kelley, a nose ulcer is an "open wound" in your nose. It's pretty rare in my understanding for Lupus patients to get the nose ulcers but, it can occur. I get them in my sinuses & yes bleeding does occur (but, not continuously) as they don't really seem to heal if you are blowing your nose often. But, with the bleeding are you getting a continuous nose bleed? Either way you should have a doctor check it out if you are experiencing having blood in your nose is could be a sign of an ulcer or something else. Hope that helps!

Happy Holidays!!

Re: Nose ulcers?

No, my nose doesn't continuously bleed, it'll start to bleed and after a while I'll blow a little bit and a big bloody something or other (yes, pretty gross) comes out and then it stops. I get this at least once a day. Thanks for the reply and happy holidays to you too!
