Health Tip: Coping With Winter Nosebleeds

(HealthDay News) -- 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.
