since iw as a kid I've always gotten a lot of nose bleeds. Most of the time they're from allergies and dry air. The warmer the dry air the more likely I am to get a nose bleed. I can usually just pinch just below that piece of bone that sicks out and it'll stop fairly quickly. Once and a while a vein will rupture (not as bad as it sounds, trust me) and I have to hold my nose pinched shut for an hour or two. Does anyone else get frequent nose bleeds? How do you deal with them? Bliss and I started to discuss how you shouldn't put your head back. I know I was told to never do it because I choked on the clot because it slipped into my throat. Are there any other reasons?
