Angry Bleeding

hey, every time im att bjj or kickboxing class ill always end up getting a bloody nose, causing me to have to sit out for 3 or 4 minutes till it stops. All it takes is for me to get hit once in the face during light sparring or if someone's chest or forearm bumos into my nose while grappling. I was wondering if there was something to do to prevent this from happening other than getting my nose cauterized by a doctor. If i keep taking shots on the nose will that help condition my nose and prevent more bloody noses?

it's winter time, it makes for easier nose bleeds. increase your water intake, i used to swab my nose with vaseline.

Stick cotton buds up it so noone notices when it bleeds.

and sticking cotton up your nose will not let you breath unless you use your mouth...making you extra succeptable to the knockout. use vasoline swabs, and dont worry, it is winter...it might just take care of itself and go away in better weather.

i had my nose broke twice, the second time i never did a follow up with the ent after the initial, nothing could be done because it was a fragmented fracture, and it needed to heal a bit before anything could be done. i let it go too far and now it bleed out of nowhere, i should go back and have it checked out...

ya Kishiro that blows. I was taking my math midterm a couple days ago and right in the middle of it blood starts running out of my nose onto my desk. The class probably thinks i did a line of coke during the test.

One thing to keep in mind (that nobody has mentioned) is if you use any sort of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) on a regular basis. What I mean to address is whether or not you use any of the following common "pain relievers" on the market: Alleve, Advil, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Naproxin, Motrin or the like.

The reason being is that they block the production of a natural body enzyme cyclooxgenase (COX) to treat pain, fever and inflammation. However they aren't very discriminatory in that function, and block both COX I and COX II which carries a side-effect of blocking platelet function (the red blood cells that handle blood clotting). In effect they thin the blood and make it easier to bleed (and many times profusely when it starts).

Aspirin is actually the worst when it comes to this. For this same reason Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is used in hospitals for pain relief, especially in patients that are due for/recovering from surgery. It is also the same reason why it's the only over-the-counter pain relief that most (knowlegeable) competitors use for 30 days prior to fight time. That may be applicable to you, or it may not be. It is something I would consider if it is.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

I noticed this problem myself. When I just get bumped in the nose it can bleed. Sometimes it wont bleed for months then BAM is starts randomly bleeding and then the cycle returns with a nose bleed almost daily.
