Nosebleeds are common. They may be scary, but they rarely indicate a serious medical problem. The nose contains many blood vessels. These blood vessels are located close to the surface in the front and back of the nose. They are very fragile and bleed easily. Nosebleeds are common in adults and children between the ages of 3 and 10. Common causes of nosebleeds include:
• foreign object stuck in the nose
• chemical irritants
• allergic reaction
• injury to the nose
• repeated sneezing
• picking the nose
• cold air
• upper respiratory infection
• large doses of aspirin
HOW IS NOSE BLEED DIAGNOSED?
General physicians may conduct a thorough examination of the nose and check for injury to other parts of face and head. A complete blood count test, nasal endoscopy, CT-scan of nose and X-ray of face and nose may be conducted to find the cause of nosebleeds
HOW IS NOSE BLEED TREATED?
While Nosebleed can be treated at home, in most of the cases, the doctor prescribes medication to treat Nose Bleed.
DID YOU KNOW?
Most nosebleeds occur during the winter in cold, dry climates. If you are prone to nosebleeds, use a humidifier in your home. Use petroleum jelly (Vaseline), an over-the-counter nasal lubricant spray, or a saline nasal spray to keep your nasal passages moist. Avoid picking your nose or blowing your nose too vigorously.If the nosebleed is related to another medical condition, such as liver disease, nasal allergies, or a chronic sinus condition, follow your doctor’s instructions to keep that problem under control. Stop smoking. Smoking contributes to nasal dryness and irritation.
