Nose Bleed

Last night (exactly 24 hours ago) I had a heavy nose bleed. I didn't think twice about it because it wasn't that bad. It lasted about 5 minutes and then diminished. However today, while at the pool, I got a REALLY bad bloody nose. I was not picking my nose, I was not hit, and I am most definitely not allergic to chlorine or anything in the pool. I also have not been taking any kind of medication at all. The nose bleed today lasted a good 10 minutes and I bled A LOT. By a lot I mean I it was a constant flow for 5 minutes and then a steady drip for the last 5 minutes. Finally it stopped.

What could be other occurrences for this? I used to get a lot of bloody noses as a child, but back then I picked my nose. Now, I do not. Suggestions?

Re: Nose Bleed

My mom had something like that, they said it was granulomas, a type of scar tissue, they're harmless except for the bleeding and they develop from old trauma to the nose lining.

The ENT doc went in and removed them, she hasn't had a problem since.


("granuloma" is a general medical term for immune-mediated scarring, don't get too freaked out by the more serious versions you'll see on the internet)

If I eat sugar I have nose bleeds really bad ten or twenty minutes. But I don't know anything about you. Do you bruise easily or have liver problems what is your age or any other health conditions?
