I'd say this is completely new to me. Do you exhale through your nose? If not, I don't think it's caused by vaping and if you do, I still don't think so. :) Pretty scientific, eh? The reason I say this is that vapor is generally warm and humid, which doesn't seem like it would cause mucus membranes to dry out to the point they'd bleed. If you exhale through your nose perhaps it could be due to a sensitivity to PG. If so, you could try changing your method to see if the nose bleeds stop. If they don't stop, see a doctor. Really.

Good luck!

Propylene glycol
"The oral toxicity of propylene glycol is very low, and large quantities are required to cause perceptible health damage in humans. Serious toxicity generally occurs only at plasma concentrations over 1 g/L, which requires extremely high intake over a relatively short period of time."
Taken from: http://en.wikipedia....ropylene_glycol
Lot of good info there :)

There are many suppliers that have VG based juices as well (vegetable glycerin) may I suggest that you click the VT certified suppliers list (top of the page) and check out some of the sites there for VG based juices, if youd like to try that instead of the PG based ones. Some people are sensitve to the PG. I'd drop some names of places but I'm a supplier (I don't carry VG juices by the way, just trying to help) and I can't really post links myself being a supplier. If you'd like to PM me I'd be more than happy to direct you to a few good sites I know for VG based juices. Good luck!

went to Doctor yesterday and he and his nurse was thrilled to hear i stoped smoking and asked me what or if i had used anything
to help me. i pulled out my e-cigs and juices he had already heared about e-cigs and said he felt it was good if it stoped me from smoking but he was a little concered about the e-juice not knowing what was in it besides nic. anyways i told him about my breathing and nose bleeds he checked my lungs and said sound real good and as far as nose bleed he said to drink more water my nose was dry and skin so for me to hydrate and that is what i did and no nose bleed. he took some notes looking at the bottles of juice i think he was writeing the names down like vapor talk . he was real happy and i went home happy knowing my lungs sounded good .oh also the dizzyness he felt was because of me not drinking enough water and i beliveit cause after i came home and drank more water i felt good.

PG ( propylene glycol) is a humectant. It absorbs water from the air. So the result from vaping is the drying out of our body. This is why drinking liquids and staying hydrated when vaping is important.

i felt good.

Yeah!!! Now there might be some more "side" effects. They shouldn't be ignored, but I know I had a sore throat, I was coughing but a productive cough and there were other things than came and went. But again, don't ignore just in case. I believe wordupecig carries VG juices anda 50/50 mix and there are so many more out there that do. I like wordup because of the sample pack, 5 5ml bottles of juice for $21, and free shipping so you can really experiment.

Props to Luke!
