Why nosebleed

According to Drugs.com:

"You should not use this medication if you are allergic to bacitracin, mineral oil, or petroleum jelly."

Seems like an odd warning for something not petroleum based...

Many nasal pillows swear by Lanolin HPA cream for dry noses relief as does breast feeding moms
Safe for mom and baby and CPAP noses too

If memory serve me right, our "SS" uses a dab of olive oil
Extra virgin, of course

Coffee

please read up on whether blood thinning medications or strain (from trying to have a bowel movement when bloating has been caused by aerophagia) could be at the source of the issue. If apnea treatment seems to be resulting in panicky feelings and/or insomnia, hypertension or heightened blood pressure may be occurring and could be at the root of the nosebleed problem.

I keep saying this, but adding xylitol to the saline spray (xlear, but its spendy) is way better for healthy nasal mucous than straight saline - which can be overly harsh and drying after the initial wetting. xylitol is better than sticking antibiotics (bacitracin) in there too.

I am nosebleed prone. I run a fairly high humidity and use the saline + xylitol morning and night, and have not had a nosebleed in > 6 mo.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

DariaVader,
I have switched to the xylitol saline spray after reading your many posts on it, and it really does work as you say. My nasal passages are no longer dry and haven't had a nosebleed in a long time.

While a nosebleed can indicate a problem, a nosebleed may not always indicate that there is an actual problem, in some cases. Often, a nosebleed is nature's way of dealing with too many blood cells being produced. This happens a lot in cold climes; residents go outdoors a lot in sub-zero temps, and the body overproduces blood cells as a compensation for that. It is more common to get a nosebleed in North Dakota in January than any other time of year. But that is natural, and nothing to worry about. But it's almost July. And odds are, you're probably not in North Dakota. And its still a mess when it happens.

Of course this information is not sourced to the JAMA, its sourced to my college roommate, who was also not in pre-med. Or maybe his mother. So, I should probably qualify this with "Just sayin' ".

A nosebleed may also indicate a real problem. Usually a minor one, not always.
