Bleeding From The Nose After Inhaling Eucalyptus Oil For Too Long?
I am not a nosebleed before. R nBut after inhaling eucalyptus oil for too long. Then I had a nosebleed / bleeding from the nose which was the first time in my life
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Inhaling some types of oil or other substances that have a strong odor (including eucalyptus oil) on some sensitive people can trigger the dilation of blood vessels in the nasal area which leads to nosebleeds (epistaxis). Although it often triggers panic in itself, in fact, as long as the nosebleed occurs only occasionally, without prolonged bleeding (more than 15 minutes), severe headaches, nausea, vomiting, or other bleeding symptoms, this condition is often harmless and can get better on its own without need special handling.
In addition to the result of inhaling a pungent smell, you can also experience the nosebleeds due to other factors, for example:
Mechanical injury, such as from rubbing or picking your nose too often
Environmental conditions that are dry, windy, or too hot
Side effects of taking certain drugs, such as aspirin, anticoagulants
Disorders of the nasal cavity, for example due to sinusitis, nasal polyps, cancer
Hypertension (high blood pressure)
Blood clotting disorders, for example due to blood cancer, vitamin K deficiency, hemophilia, and so on
You can temporarily resolve your complaint with the following efforts:
Calm yourself, move to a comfortable environment when there is a nosebleed
Press your nose with your index and thumb
Nosebleed nasal plug with cotton rolls
Apply ice to the top of your nose (between your eyes)
Sit up straight, breathe through your mouth
Do not take drugs carelessly
So that complaints do not recur, first avoid the habit of smelling smelly aromas
However, if the nosebleed doesn't stop within 15 minutes, recurs very often, or appears accompanied by other complaints as mentioned above, then don't hesitate to see a doctor or ENT specialist right away.
I hope this helps.
