Wintry climates and cold viruses can lead to frequent nosebleeds, says the National Hemophilia Foundation.
To prevent nosebleeds during winter, the foundation suggests:
- Use a humidifier to moisturize the air.
- Use a nasal saline spray or water-soluble gel for your nose.
- If you have a cold, wipe gently. Don’t clear your nose with hard blows.
- Avoid vigorous activities after a nosebleed.
- Don’t pick your nose.
