Bleeding nose or nosebleed generally indicates the draining of blood through the nostrils. It is medically called epistaxis, a common medical problem in adults and children between the ages of 2 and 10. Nosebleeds, although seem scary, are rarely serious and may need medical intervention.
Several local and systemic factors cause bleeding nose such as:
Anyone can get affected by nosebleeds and can look serious. They are not usually an indication of any serious illness. Most often they can be treated at home.
When you notice your nosebleed, sit or stand still and squeeze the soft part of the nose gently and firmly for about 10 -15 minutes. Ensure you close the nostrils and breathe through the mouth. Leaning forward will prevent the blood going down the throat. Lying down may result in swallowing blood which will irritate the stomach causing nausea and vomiting. Apply a cold pack over the bridge of the nose and repeat the steps if bleeding continue.
