How to Treat a Nosebleed

Fellowship In Head & Neck Oncosurger, MD - ENT , MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Gurgaon
How to Treat a Nosebleed

A nose bleed can take place due to a number of reasons, which usually all boil down to acute dryness of the nasal passages. The nosebleed and dryness can stem from sinus, allergic reactions, constant blowing of the nose, infections, and also during very harsh winter months when there is no lubrication in the nose. Nose bleed can also occur due to conditions, such as high blood pressure and when a foreign object gets stuck inside the nose.

Here are a few tips on treating nosebleeds:

  1. First step: The very first action when you experience a nose bleed should be to sit down. Once you are sitting, you should firmly pinch the spot that is soft. This lies just above the nostril. Do this for at least ten to fifteen minutes. The trick is to stay upright rather than lying down as this will bring down the blood pressure in the nasal blood vessels to stop further bleeding.
  2. Breathe: Breathe with your mouth as you lean forward to help in draining the blood into your nose, rather than out of it or towards the throat.
  3. Ice compress: Find a bag of frozen corn or peas in your freezer or an ice pack, and press this firmly against the nose to help in stemming the bleeding. As you are doing so, do not forget to cover the bridge of your nose with a towel so that it prevents you from catching a cold.
  4. Medication and side effects: If you are on any kind of anticoagulants that end up thinning the blood, then you may immediately want to see your doctor about a possible side effects and a change in the medication. This could also be an effect of haemophilia where the bleeding does not stop.
  5. Children: If a child who is under the age of two years suffers from such nosebleeds, then you will need to rush him or her to the doctor immediately as it could point at a more serious problem.
  6. Anaemia (learn more about Anaemia and how it affects the health): Nose bleeds could also suggest the presence of anaemia, so you may want to see your doctor about lab tests to determine and possibly rule out this cause. You can also start medication accordingly for this kind of an ailment.
  7. Nasal Packing: The doctor can carry out this procedure with the help of gauze that can seal the spot where the bleeding is happening.
  8. Cautery: This is a minor procedure that involves burning the blood vessel that is causing the persistent bleeding with a stick of silver nitrate. The stick will be inserted after local anaesthesia is administered to the patient.

You must see a doctor for severe and prolonged bleeding.

There may be associated nasal polyps in nose or blocked sinus drainage pathway that is causing you this problem. Get a xray done of nose and sinus to rule out any underlying pathology. Review with report.

Sir how can I avoid snoring. Nowadays I'm snoring very frequently. Please help me to prevent this.

MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Gandhinagar
Snoring: snoring is mainly due to vibration of pharyngeal parts mainly soft palate parapharyngeal bands base of tongue, adenoids and polyps in nose etc and also deviated nasal septum plays the role. It is better to go for sleep study test and endoscopy of nose and throat in awake and sleeping pt. Also mri during sleep helps to come to diagnosis. Sleep ap machine can help the pt. Also surgery of nasal polyp, deviated nasal septum, tonsils and adenoids, soft palate and base tongue can help to cure or reduce the snoring.

I had my first intercourse on 5th midnight. I started bleeding after 6 hours of my first intercourse. It has been 2 days and I am changing two pads a day. My last periods were on 10th june to 14th june. I am confused whether it is my periods or vaginal bleeding. I felt a bit dizzy jst after sex when I tried to walk. So is there a possibility that I started bleeding internally that moment?

If it is periods, the bleeding will be darker, with small pieces of clots. It will reduce in quantity by 50% on day 3. If it is bleeding due to injury after intercourse the blood will be bright red in colour and it will flow at constant rate. If it continues beyond the third day, see a gynecologist.

He always suffers from ear pain In past he was hit there by his father What care should be taken.
If the hit is very severe there may be rupture of tympanic membrane of the bear which is very thin just. 7 mm or it could be some minor fracture or damage of ear bone in the middle ear. Hence you should consult a ent. Specialist for further assessment and management.

Thanks for the question cough and throat ache may be initial symptoms of a viral infection. You have not mentioned the duration of these or whether you are having running nose or fever. Seasonal change may prone one to these infections specially humid weather when these microorganisms thrive very well. Also the rising levels of pollution is an important factor. Drink plenty of oral fluids and you can take paracetamol (650 mg) for the throat ache. However, if your symptoms continue for more than 3 days or you develop high fever with active sputum an antibiotic course may be needed. If your cough is more of a dry variant, anti-allergic medications and steam inhalation will help.

I have dry cough and sometimes I feel like my throat is blocked and I am unable to breath since about a month.
Do you have only dry cough or is it associated with recurrent sneezing and nasal discharge. Appears to be allergic in nature and requires complete evaluation and ruling out of asthma.

Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.
