There are a variety of reasons that why people get nose bleeds. Some people sustain nose injuries and get a nose bleed that eventually goes away and heals up. However, other people get nose bleeds all year long for no reason at all. If you are like me, you get nose bleeds during the time of year that the pollen count is the highest. The irritants from the allergens in the air tend to make my nose bleed off and on during the spring and fall time of year.
The nose bleeds are typically small and don’t last very long and sometimes are barely even noticeable. However, I have a child who gets nosebleeds in the wintertime. For the longest time, we had no idea why this was happening since I always thought that people who got nose bleeds had terrible allergies. We learned that the dry air was actually what was causing his nose to bleed. The first few that he had were rather scary because there was a lot of blood and we couldn’t get them to stop. By adding a humidifier to his bedroom, we were able to reduce the nose bleeds that he got in the winter. Nose bleeds seem to happen for a variety of reasons, but the reasons I have seen the most of are because of allergies and dry air.a
