I get periodic nose bleeds when the humidity is very low. When I do bleed, my blood tastes and smells slightly like metal. What might that indicate? Should I be concerned?
It is not uncommon to get nosebleeds when the air is dry. It happens when the nasal passages dry out. You can try putting a little vaseline in the nostrils to keep them moisturized especially when going outside. It is also normal for blood to smell and taste metallic. It is just the way blood is.
your problem could be as simple from dryness in the house you live in, have you ever tried putting coffee can on the registers of your home room to room (same effect as humidifi8er) the water evaporates due to the dryness in the air and can be refilled when dry and sometimes it works, My Dad had a more serious problem and had the nose bleeds let me ask you how much blood do you loose? is in thin? come every day or two? ever get anemic(Low blood)? if this or answer to any of the above questions then you need to be talking to the doctor I do not want you scared under neeless circumstances so if the humidification (taking care of dry air helps that may be your answer)
