the seasons have changed... people are heating the buildings and something is causing me nosebleeds, expecially when I'm wearing a lot of clothing...like a steampunk outfit.
cooling my wrists works to stop them but i'd like to prevent it rather than stop it.

That's not really how the Anatomical section works.

I know, but its a real question. Was struck by nosebleed 3 times today and Im getting tired of it, litterly.
I dont care if its moved, maybe off topic would be better.

Perhaps some form of irritation of the mucus linings caused by the washing powder or anti-moth stuff used on your winter clothes.

Happen to me too.

Salty water or salty water based cream in the nose do wonder in this case since hydratation is the key.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Used to have them when younger. After two massive nosebleeds while on holidays with relatives a trip to the hospital and a quick cauterisation stopped them in their tracks!

In my late teens and early twenties I had repeated nosebleeds.  They turned out to be caused by a deviated septum, cartilage in the middle of my nose being bent and causing a blockage.  You could see an ear nose and throat specialist to check if it's something like that.

I'd also check the hydration angle and drink more liquids. Cold air is drier air, and heated air in a house in cold weather, even in a relatively humid coastal climate, is often even drier than that. petrolem jelly or vaporub on teh nstrils often helps me.

a thick bushy mustache helps recycle the moisture but that may raise more questions than the nose bleed. Cheesy

everyone I've known that had a history of nose bleeds had cauterizations and broke the cycle.

salt water rinses can feel very odd but can toughen up the lining and help out.  they sell kits for doing it, mostly for people with chronic sinus infections.

if you have troubles stopping the nose bleeds once they start, chilling the bridge of the nose can help. keeping some silly putty in a fridge. it is flesh colored so holding it on the bridge of your nose can be done fairly discretely  and it will conform to your skin for maximum contact. just leave it pre-shaped before refrigeration since it gets very firm once chilled. it might irritate your skin so try it at home over the weekend to see if you have a reaction. it's a bit oily and can compound things if you have oily skin to begin with
