My mother has been prone to minor issues with a bloody nose, some due to dryness in winter which we address with a humidifier & saline nose spray. But she has been on Plavix since mid-September and is starting to have real gushers upon getting up to go to the bathroom early in the morning. Not every day, but enough to cause concern. She manages to get them stopped on her own, but this morning she looked like something from a haunted house, with blood all over her hands & night cliothes. l will be contacting her doctor asap but in tbe mean-time, what else can I do to help?
