Dry air can bring them on
(HealthDayNews) -- If you're susceptible to nosebleeds, the dry winter air may bring them on more frequently, according to the Medical College of Wisconsin. A dry environment can make the lining in your nose thinner and more vulnerable to minor irritations.
Reduce the likelihood of your nose bleeding by:
- Drinking more water.
- Using a salt-based nasal spray as frequently as necessary.
- Gently applying a small amount of petroleum jelly to the lining of your nose.
- Using a home humidifier.
- Avoiding regular use of aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications. They diminish the blood's ability to clot.
