I've had 5 nosebleeds in the last 10 days. They're not severe, only last a minute. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Do you have Bartonella?

I used to have many nosebleeds and had to have it cauterized. I learned just recently that Bartonella can cause epitaxis (nosebleeds).

Just a thought.

Also, maybe the air is dry?? (or is it humid all the time in Fla?)

Do you have seasonal allergies?

Thanks for your reply, kitty9309. I don't have allergies and the humidity is still very high.

My LLMD suspected Bart a while ago, but have been concentrating on Lyme treatment this year. I see my dr. on Fri. and will bring up the nosebleeds and dreaded Bart treatment.

I had a doctor ages ago help me with nosebleeds. Take Vitamin K. We often don't get enough in our diet. Google it and you will find the reason it helps. Worked for my son also.
