Health Tip: Prevent Frequent Nosebleeds
Simple steps may help

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Frequent nosebleeds often are triggered by dry air. So they may be preventable.

The Seattle Children's Hospital offers these prevention strategies:

  • Run a humidifier if the air tends to be dry. This helps keep tissues in the nose moist.
  • Apply a dab of petroleum jelly on the center wall of the nose twice daily.
  • Blow the nose gently.
  • Skip ibuprofen and aspirin, which can increase bleeding.
