Bleeding and flying

Flying with bleeding from the nose is not good idea. Nose bleeds are typically no big deal; however, if the bleeding does not stop and you need medical attention you could get into trouble on an airplane. Even if there was a doctor on the flight, there are no supplies on the plane. It's a better idea to address the hematoma before flying. Safety comes first.
