Nose Bleeding - What Should You Know?

Nose Bleeding - What Should You Know?

Nosebleeds can be frightening and dramatic. Luckily, most cases of nosebleeds can be dealt with fair ease. Nosebleeds can be classified into two types depending upon the origin of the nose bleed, namely anterior and posterior.

  • Anterior bleed is the most common, and the bleeding is from a blood vessel which is present in the front part of the nose. These bleeds can be easily controlled by simple measures taken by doctors or at home.
  • Posterior nose bleeds are usually indicative of something more complicated and occur mostly in adults or the elderly. The bleed can be caused by a rupture in arteries in the posterior part of the nose. These nosebleeds can get severe and may require admission to a hospital for treatment and management. They are the most common in kids in the range of 2 to 10 years and adults older than 50 years.

What can cause nosebleeds?

  • The most common cause of a nosebleed is probably trauma or an injury to the nose. External trauma includes a sharp blow to the nose, whereas internal injury comprises of injury from picking your nose continuously or irritation from cold.
  • Less frequently, an underlying condition can also result in nosebleeds. These conditions include diseases that make clotting difficult. The inability of blood to properly coagulate and clot can be contributed by blood-thinning agents like aspirin and warfarin.
  • Disease in the liver can also cause problems in the clotting of blood. Rarely, cancer in the nose or abnormal blood vessels present in the nose can contribute to bleeding. Another cause of nosebleeds can be high blood pressure, but it is rarely the only reason.

What are the symptoms of nosebleeds?

  • Nosebleeds usually occur from one nostril. Sometimes, if the bleeding is excessive, the nostril can get filled with blood and it can cross the nasopharynx and overflow into the other nostril and result in bleeding from both nostrils. The blood can also go into the throat and one may spit out blood from the mouth or vomit out blood (hematemesis).
  • Excessive blood loss can cause dizziness, confusion, lightheadedness, and can also cause fainting. Excessive blood loss from nosebleeds is not very common.
  • Although, nosebleeds are rarely a complication, it is advised to consult a doctor if the occurrences are too frequent.

Adeen is 5.5 years old and lives in dubai since jan 2019. For the last 4 weeks he has been suffering from persistent cough. He has had a course of azithromycin and is on another dose from today. He is severely allergic to dust and had a congested nose for quite sometime. Doctor put him on chlorohistamine and zyrtec with avemis nasal spray and that helped with the nasal congestion. On the 4th of june, there was profuse bleeding from his nose. Post that he was given the allergy meds and nebulising with saline water. Today again his nose started bleeding and his cough has become worse. For last 3 days he has been running temperature of 100-103. Please guide me what to do.

Hello, Take a chest x-ray and cbc count. You need full treatment consult a paediatrician. Child need continuous follow up so best is treatment in physical with a paediatrician. You can share the reports and discuss on line. Don't let the child put finger in nose. Too much nasal drops dries up nasal mucosa. Bleeding is because of that. Just put little drops of warm water in each nostril. Since he is allergic to dust avoid dusty environment. Give him a mask to wear till he recovers.

Nosebleeds - How Can You Keep It At Bay?

Nosebleeds - How Can You Keep It At Bay?

There are various kinds of nosebleeds that can be caused by a variety of conditions. While some of them may not be too serious, one must never ignore heavy and persistent nosebleeds. These nosebleeds are usually of two kinds: anterior nosebleeds, and posterior nosebleeds. While 90% of all nosebleeds are anterior nosebleeds, the posterior nosebleeds are far less common and may be slightly more serious in nature.

An anterior nosebleed is usually caused in the blood vessels that lie on the front portion of the nose and can be controlled easily. A posterior nosebleed usually comes from damage to an artery in the rear portion of the nose. Infection, trauma, allergic reactions and other such causes may be behind a nosebleed. Let us cast a glance on the tips to prevent nosebleeds:

  1. Salt water and saline nose drops can be used in order to prevent nosebleeds. It is important to take these on a regular basis in case you are experiencing these nosebleeds on a regular basis. 
  2. The use of painkillers like Aspirin and other non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs must be limited. Sometimes, taking such medication too frequently may lead to nosebleeds. 
  3. You would do well to control your blood pressure because hypertension and other forms of high blood pressure can also cause nosebleeds. Lifestyle changes like your diet and exercise can help in keeping a more stable blood pressure level so that you do not fall prey to frequent nosebleeds.
  4. Humidify your home with a humidifier so that the air does not get too dry. Many times, this causes nosebleeds. Also, you may want to keep the heat down in the bedrooms. Many nosebleeds happen due to too warm temperatures while you are sleeping. 
  5. Nose picking should also be discouraged as it can lead to nosebleeds in case there is a scratch or any other kind of damage when you try to force the dirt out. 
  6. It has also been found that smoking has a connection with nosebleeds. This can be fixed if the patient quits smoking. 
  7. One should not use nasal sprays without a prescription from a doctor. This also includes antihistamines, decongestants as well as other medicated sprays. These may not suit the patient at all times, and may also lead to nosebleeds. 
  8. In the event of a nosebleed, you will need to lean forward with your head tilted backwards. This will stem the bleeding. If it is possible, you must also try and lie down immediately for a few minutes.

1. Do saline gargles daily. 2. Whenever possible do steam inhalation also. 3. Cover your nose and mouth with hanky for at least 30 sec when you go in dusty areas also when you go in and out of ac. As our nose is the most sensitive part of our body, when there is temperature difference between two rooms or inside n outside, then if we not protect our nose, it gets affected. 4. Drink hot liquids --hot liquids relieve nasal congestion, prevent dehydration, and soothe the uncomfortably inflamed membranes that line your nose and throat. 5. Sleep with an extra pillow under your head-- elevating your head will help relieve congested nasal passages. If the angle is too awkward, try placing the pillows between the mattress and the box springs to create a more gradual slope. 6. Treat that stuffy nose with warm salt water-- salt-water rinsing helps break nasal congestion, while also removing virus particles and bacteria from your nose. 7. Blow your nose often (and the right way)-- it's important to blow your nose regularly when you have a cold rather than sniffling mucus back into your head. But when you blow hard, pressure can carry germ-carrying phlegm back into your ear passages, causing earache. The best way to blow your nose: press a finger over one nostril while you blow gently to clear the other. Homeopathic treatment has very encouraging results and gives relief in long term please ask for consultation with detailed information so that I can help you better.

Broken Nose - Causes And Symptoms!

Broken Nose - Causes And Symptoms!

A broken nose, often referred to as a fractured nose or a nasal fracture,is a crack or break in the bones of your nose. The bone that is more prone to getting fractured is the one over the bridge of the nose.


There can be a lot of reasons for a broken nose. Common causes include falling down on your face or the nose being hit by a blunt object. Your nose may look twisted and you might have trouble breathing. A nasal fracture can cause pain in the nose and is usually accompanied by bruising and inflammation around the nose.

Any activity that tends to increase the possibility of facial injuries can also increase the possibility of a nasal fracture. The common risk factors include playing contact sports like soccer or rugby without proper face protection. Riding atwo-wheeler without a helmet or not using seatbelt in a four wheeler can cause a nasal fracture if the vehicle meets with an accident. Physical fights can also result in a broken nose.

Symptoms and complications

The common symptoms of a nasal fracture are:

1. Pain in the nasal region - You may feel pain just by touching your nose.
2. Swelling around the nasal region can also be observed.
3. Your nose and the region below the eyes may be bruised.
4. Sometimes you may experiencebreathing problems as well, since your nasal passage can be blocked due to a nasal fracture. 
5. Loss of shape of your nose along with bleeding and discharge of mucus from it are common signs of a nasal fracture.

There can be a lot of complications that can occur due to a broken nose. The complications mayvary according to the nature of injury. The common complications are :

1. Clotting and collection of blood - Due to a heavy injury to your nose, the blood tends to clot in large quantities and sometimes can cause blockages in the nostrils. This condition is specifically referred to as septal hematoma and needs a quick surgical procedure to prevent any sort of breathing problems.
2. Another complication that can result due to a nasal fractureisa nasal cartilage fracture or a deviation in the septum. 
3. Sometimes the impact of the blow which has caused a fracture in the nose can also result in a neck injury.

Dengue & Chikungunya - Have Homeopathy At Your Rescue!

Dengue & Chikungunya - Have Homeopathy At Your Rescue!

Many surveys have proved that homeopathic medicines are extremely effective in treating all these cases of viral fever related to Dengue and Chikungunya, thereby help in restoring the health of the patient. Let us see one by one how homeopathy can help in the prevention and cure of both:

Dengue is a mosquito-borne infectious disease, which causes flu-like symptoms. The Dengue is caused by 4 different viruses and is spread by the Aedes species of mosquitos. Dengue affects your blood cells, which in turn results in a sudden drop in the platelet count. Ideally, the platelet count ranges from 1.5-4 lacs, but in people affected by dengue virus, the platelet count goes down to as low as 20,000-40,000. This condition can be fatal. The onset on dengue is through fever. Dengue is one of the diseases that is transmitted through parasites like mosquitoes. Often it tends to occur in most of the tropical countries.

Symptoms of dengue can vary from mild to severe-

Initial dengue symptoms usually develop 4-7 days after the mosquito bite. So many times the person affected by the virus does not realize that he/she has already been infected. If the fever does not subside in 3-4 days, one should immediately consult a doctor and have himself diagnosed.

Prevention and Cure through Homeopathy:
The Homeopathic approach of prevention and cure include:

  1. It is an effective way through which immune-modulation of patients is done without having the risk of any side-effect.
  2. The choice of homeopathic drugs depends upon an individual’s response to infection and the severity of the virus.
  3. The symptoms of the patients affected are studied carefully to decide upon the curative as well as preventive homeopathic medicines.


Similar to dengue, the chikungunya virus is spread by an infected female mosquito- the Aedes genus mosquito. Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on any person affected with this virus. Unlike dengue, this viral disease is rarely fatal. However, the symptoms of chikungunya can be long-lasting, severe and debilitating.

The major symptoms of chikungunya include-

In 2006, Chikungunya affected approximately 40,000 people, out of which nearly 1316 cases turned out to be fatal.

Prevention and Cure through Homeopathy:

In Homeopathy, there is a concept known as “Genus Epidemicus”, which helps as preventive remedy in an epidemic like this. This concept involves:

  1. Clinical picture of a group of patients in a specific locality gets studied and hence the most appropriate remedy is selected as the Genus Epidemicus for Chikungunya.
  2. Genus Epidemicus helps in increasing person’s immunity to such a level that even after mosquito bites; it is unable to produce any active disease in the person’s body.


  1. Homeopathic medicines get prescribed as per the clinical presentation of the patient, which become very effective in giving relief from the complaints during Chikungunya.
  2. Homeopathy is effective in all kinds of viral diseases.
  3. The pills given are simply chewed on tongue and tastes sweet.
  4. These medicines do not cause any kind of gastric irritation.

Why Homoeopathy?

Since there are no effective medications, vaccines or treatment options for Dengue and Chikungunya, the only way to steer clear of these diseases is to prevent their occurrence. Homoeopathy medicines and remedies are very effective in preventing and curing the mosquito-borne diseases, Dengue and Chikungunya. These medicines are prepared from natural substances, hence are extremely safe. Eupatorium perfoliatum is a perennial plant, the extracts of which are used in preparing homoeopathy drugs for dengue. This helps ease the pain in the joints and in the eyeballs. This wonder plant also helps you recover from a severe headache. Arsenic album, a solution made from diluted aqueous arsenic trioxide, can ease symptoms like nausea and vomiting. Belladonna can cure high fever; reduce skin rashes and swelling in the joints.

Apart from these, health awareness is mandatory for the prevention of these diseases. Clean surroundings, practising good hygiene play a major role in averting prevalence of mosquito-borne diseases.

नाक की हड्डी बढ़ना - Naak Ki Haddi Badhna!

नाक की हड्डी बढ़ना - Naak Ki Haddi Badhna!

नाक की हड्डी, नाक के अंदर श्वसनमार्ग की सतह में "टर्बिनेट" नामक एक लम्बी बनावट को कहते हैं. इसका काम नाक के अंदर जाने वाली हवा को गर्म और नम बनाने का है. कई बार यह टर्बिनेट बड़ा हो जाता है और ये नाक में जाने वाली हवा में रुकावट पैदा करने लगते हैं. इस समस्या को ही बोलचाल की भाषा में 'नाक की हड्डी बढ़ना' और चिकित्स्कीय भाषा में “टर्बिनेट हाइपरट्रोफी” कहा जाता है. इस समस्या से सांस लेने में समस्याएं, इन्फेक्शन और नाक से खून आना जैसे लक्षण हो सकते हैं. साइनस इन्फेक्शन, एलर्जी और वातावरण में परिवर्तन से निचले टर्बिनेट सूज और सिकुड़ सकते हैं. जब लोअर टर्बिनेट की सूजन कम नहीं होती है, तो उसे नाक की हड्डी बढ़ना कहा जाता है. आमतौर पर नाक में 3 से 4 टर्बिनेट होते हैं. ज़्यादातर लोगों के नाक में ऊपरी, मध्यम और निचले टर्बिनेट होते हैं. आमतौर पर, निचले और मध्यम टर्बिनेट बढ़ने के कारण “टर्बिनेट हाइपरट्रोफी” की समस्या होती है. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हम नाक की हड्डी के बढ़ने के विभिन्न पहलुओं पर एक नजर डालें.

नाक की हड्डी बढ़ने के प्रकार-

  • नेस्ल साइकल: - इस प्रकार में नाक के एक तरफ मौजूद टर्बिनेट चार से छः घंटे तक सूज जाते हैं और इनके ठीक होने पर नाक के दूसरी तरफ के टर्बिनेट में सूजन हो जाती हैं.
  • क्रॉनिक: - नाक की हड्डी बढ़ने का क्रॉनिक प्रकार टर्बिनेट में लम्बे समय से इन्फेक्शन या सूजन रहने के कारण होता है और टर्बिनेट निरंतर बढ़ता रहता है.

नाक की हड्डी बढ़ने के लक्षण-

* नाक की हड्डी बढ़ने से नाक से सांस लेने में कठिनाई होती है. इसके अन्य लक्षण निम्नलिखित हैं –
* सूंघने की क्षमता में कमी आना
* चेहरे में हल्का दर्द होना
* लंबे समय तक नाक बंद रहना
* नाक बहना
* खर्राटे लेना
* मुंह से सांस लेने के कारण सो कर उठने पर मुंह का सूखा हुआ होना
* माथे पर दबाव महसूस होना

नाक की हड्डी बढ़ने के कारण-

टर्बिनेट के ऊपर मौजूद झिल्ली खून के प्रवाह के आधार पर फूलती और सिकुड़ती है. इसके सबसे आम कारण निम्नलिखित हैं –

  • शरीर के तापमान में बदलाव.
  • गर्भावस्था.
  • उम्र बढ़ना.
  • जन्मजात समस्याएं.
  • लंबे समय से होने वाली साइनस की सूजन.
  • वातावरण में मौजूद कुछ उत्तेजित करने वाले पदार्थ. मौसम में होने वाली एलर्जी.
  • ड्रग्स लेना.
  • हार्मोन में परिवर्तन.
  • सर्दी जुकाम.
  • ऊपर बताई गई सभी समस्याओं से नाक की हड्डी और टर्बिनेट के टिश्यू बढ़ सकते है या सूज सकते हैं.
  • नाक की हड्डी बढ़ने की समस्या से परेशान कई लोगों के परिवार के लोगों को एलर्जिक राइनाइटिस की समस्या होती है या कभी हुई होती है.

नाक की हड्डी के बढ़ने का उपचार-
नाक की हड्डी बढ़ने का निदान दवाओं और सर्जरी से किया जाता है.

* दवाएं
ऐसी कुछ दवाएं हैं जिन्हें नाक की हड्डी बढ़ने के इलाज के लिए उपयोग किया जा सकता है, जैसे -

1. नाक की सूजन को कम करने के लिए नाक खोलने वाली दवाओं का उपयोग किया जा सकता है. ऐसा भी हो सकता है कि यह कुछ समय बाद प्रभाव दिखाना कम कर देता है.

2. सिट्राज़िन या लोराटीडीन जैसी दवाओं का उपयोग मौसम में होने वाली एलर्जी को कम करने के लिए किया जाता है.

3. सुडोइफीड्रीन और फिनाइलइफ्रीन जैसी दवाएं बंद नाक खोलने में असरदार होती हैं. हालाँकि, इन दवाओं से ब्लड प्रेशर पर प्रभाव पड़ता है, इसीलिए ये दवाएं उन लोगों को नहीं लेनी चाहिए जिन्हें पहले से ही ब्लड प्रेशर की समस्याएं हैं.

* सर्जरी
अगर आपको अन्य उपायों से राहत महसूस नहीं हो रहा है, तो आपके टर्बिनेट का साइज़ कम करने के लिए डॉक्टर आपकी सर्जरी कर सकते हैं. इसके लिए निम्नलिखित तीन सर्जरी की जाती हैं

1. सबम्यूकोसल डायाथर्मी: - इस सर्जरी में एक विशेष सुई का उपयोग करके गर्मी के द्वारा टर्बिनेट के अंदर के सॉफ्ट टिश्यू को सिकोड़ा जाता है.

2. इन्फीरियर टर्बिनेट बोन रिसेक्शन: - इस सर्जरी में लोअर टर्बिनेट के हड्डी के एक हिस्सा को निकाला जाता है ताकि नाक में पर्याप्त हवा जा सके.

3. पार्शियल इन्फीरियर टर्बिनेक्टमी: - इस प्रक्रिया में निचले टर्बिनेट में मौजूद सॉफ्ट टिश्यू निकाले जाते हैं.

नाक की हड्डी को बढ़ने से रोकने के उपाय-

नाक की हड्डी को बढ़ने से रोकने के लिए वातावरण में मौजूद एलर्जी करने वाले पदार्थों के संपर्क में आने से बचना चाहिए. इसके लिए आप निम्नलिखित उपाय कर सकते हैं –

1. घर को साफ़ रखें और मिट्टी इकट्ठी न होने दें. इसके लिए कारपेट, तकिए, परदे और फर्नीचर को अच्छे से साफ़ करें.
2. कपडे वाले खिलौनों को फ्रिज में रखें और 24 घंटों के लिए छोड़ दें. ऐसा करने से उनमें मौजूद एलर्जी करने वाले सूक्ष्म कीटाणु मर जाते हैं.
3. फफूंद को हटाने के लिए ख़ास बनाए गए सफाई करने वाले क्लीनर्स का उपयोग करें. खासकर, बेसमेंट, बाथरूम और रसोई में.
4. अगर आपके पास पालतू जानवर हैं, तो उन्हें अपने बैडरूम से बाहर रखें. ऐसा करने से मिट्टी और अन्य एलर्जी करने वाले पदार्थ कम होंगे.
5. घर में मौजूद हवा को साफ़ करने के लिए एयर फ़िल्टर का इस्तेमाल करें. इन फ़िल्टरों को इस्तेमाल करने की सबसे सही जगह बेडरूम होती है.
6. अपने गद्दे पर कवर चढ़ा कर रखें, जिससे एलर्जी करने वाले माइक्रो बैक्टीरिया से बचा जाता है.
7. स्मोकिंग न करें, विशेष कर घर के अंदर.
