My mother has been experiencing an uncontrollable cough. At seemingly random times, she will be overcome with a cough. She will need to stop what she is doing and get a drink. Just now she started coughing and her nose began to bleed considerably. What could cause this and would any medicine help? She has normal allergies but it has never been this extreme. She has shown no other symptoms. Answered by Valentina Alexakis 2 years ago.
Nasal Allergies, colds and infections Allergies, colds and sinus infections are major causes of recurring nosebleeds throughout the year. In the US annually 35 million suffer with nasal allergies, 31 million experience sinus infections and there are 1 billion colds reported. Nosebleeds often result from these conditions due to: -The swelling and irritation of the nasal cavities they cause -The side effects of certain medications, particularly the steroid nasal sprays -The excessive nasal dryness caused by frequent use of nasal decongestants. Some of the nasal sprays reporting nosebleeds as a side effect include: Veramyst, Flonase, Nasonex, Omnaris, Astepro, Nasalide, Decadron, Beconase, Vancenase and Rhinocort Aqua What Is NasalCEASE? NasalCEASE is a natural based bio-polymer, designed and manufactured with unique properties for the quick and convenient treatment of minor nosebleeds. Doctor recommended, the key attributes of the NasalCEASE packing are: Stops Bleeding Fast – As soon as NasalCEASE comes in contact with blood, calcium is released. Calcium is a coagulant which actively aids in stopping the bleeding quickly. Calcium continues to be released until the bleeding has stopped. Easy / Painless Insertion – The soft fibers of NasalCEASE allow it to be quickly and easily inserted into the nasal cavity without any discomfort. Adsorbs Blood – NasalCEASE continues to adsorb blood throughout the duration of the nosebleed. This unique polymer can adsorb up to twenty times its weight. As a result 90%+ of nosebleeds can be effectively treated with one NasalCEASE packing. This allows the nosebleed sufferer to insert NasalCEASE and forget about it until removal thirty minutes later. Promotes Healing – As NasalCEASE adsorbs blood, the sodium in the blood changes the packing from a dry to moist or gelified mass. This moist mass against the wound site promotes healing. Also as the blood is continually adsorbed into the packing and not just pooling between the packing and the wound site, the size of the clots are less. Excessive clots can often cause bleeding to reoccur. Non-stick Removal – As NasalCEASE changes to a moist / gelified mass, the packing doesn’t stick to new clots, preventing resistance and pulling on clots when removed. No Rebleeds – Disturbing new clots causes rebleeding 10% to 15% of the time. As NasalCEASE doesn’t stick to new clots, it doesn’t cause rebleeding. NasalCEASE is sold in boxes of five sterile packs. Each sterile pack treats one nosebleed. The individual sterile packs are conveniently stored and are very portable, ensuring easy availability whenever and wherever a nosebleed occurs. The product has a five year shelf life. Visit www.nasalcease.com for additional information and free product samples. Answered by Don Nini 2 years ago.

strong coughs can cause eruption of small nasal blood vessels and lead to bleeding. the coughing can be brought on by drainage from the back of the nasal passages and moving downward toward the epiglottis where a cough reflex is initiated. a pharmacist could offer something over the counter to help with the nose bleed, or you can just put your head back and pinch the nose just below the cartilage where the nose can be easily squeezed together. an ice pack to the nose may help. also packing the nose with cotton or gauze for a few minutes can help but there are problems associated with that when one isnt knowledgeable about removing the packing, or leaving it in to long. as long as your able to deal with it, and no other symptoms are present your likely ok. oh, any nose bleed seems like your losing a ton of blood, in reality it may be hardly more than a tablespoonful. but if you have six seven nosebleeds a day that teaspoonful ads up. so you be the judge, just an occassional nose bleed from strong involuntary coughing, or many bleeds from many coughing spells throughout the day. if this were so you might want to consult an ENT doctor.

i've never heard of nosebleeds occuring, though it could be a side affect of heavy coughing which is a side affect of smoking marijuana. six times a day is definetly excessive though and is probably something that deserves attention. however, it doesnt cause high blood pressure. if he refuses to tone it down... i'd recommend you try to get him to drink more water which should cause fewer nosebleeds due to dry nasal cavities. or get him to try and eat it which will negate any effects from smoking, or if he refuses to do that due to the hassle... get a vaporizer which allows him to inhale but not be "smoking" it is what is used my medical patients and isn't unhealthy in any way... however a vaporizer can be expensive, although a good investment for someone that smokes that much Answered by Maple Shaer 2 years ago.
