blood out of nose and eye

My boyfriend just woke up at 4 am with a bloody nose and bloody tears.  He only has had four blood tears come out of his eye, what should he do?

Hi

Thanks for the post!
Blood from eyes could be due to retrograde flow of blood from nose to eyes. Blood as tears is very rare. This is because of polyps of nose, tumors of nose or some bleeding disorders.

Your boyfriend should consult an Ear Nose Throat (ENT) specialist. In case he bleeds again, crush ice and make an ice pack by wrapping it in a handkerchief. Apply this ice pack to the nose. Do not pinch the nose to stop bleeding because that will force the blood backwards into the eye. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
