Blood in the Nose
      #27868 - 02/07/02 02:34 PM

Hi all! Please help - I have dry blood inside my nose, stuck to the sides. It's not that close to the openings of the nostrils but rather deeper. Has anyone had the same problem before? The blood IS NOT coming out of my nose, but when I scrape off those dark red bits some minor, bleeding does take place (can see blood on the finger) and then stops. Is this thrombocytopenia? (HIV-induced low blood platelet count.) Has anyone had this for any other reasons?

I am having it right now also...Mine however is related to the weather and depending on where you are located I would wager your's is the same. Especially if you continue to irritate the lining of the nose (I think you know what I mean). It will cause the nose to bleed just like extremely dry chapped skin. I have found that simply using cough drops helps dry the nose, and stops you from continuously blowing and irritating the nose further so it may heal. Just a suggestion...
