Blood Clots In The Left Nose For 4 Days?
. It has been 4 days since my left nose has clotted blood clots. When I was cleaning it. Whereas before I had never had a nosebleed and the one with the wound was the right nose, the wound near the nostril but why did the blood come out on the left nose? Every time I clean there must be more. Is that dangerous? Is that one of the symptoms of a certain disease? Explanation please. thanks.

Blood clots in your nostrils, come from the blood in the kisselbach plexus, which ruptures as a result of picking your nose. The Kisselbach plexus is a collection of capillary blood vessels found in the front of the nose (lobe). This plexus is a fragile blood vessel, so that only with friction when scraping the nose, bleeding can occur. Because the Kisselbach plexus is a capillary blood vessel, bleeding that occurs is also mild. Where only by pressing the nasal lobe generally bleeding will stop. Only in a few cases that require treatment or medical treatment, such as nosebleeds that occur due to the rupture of the kisselbach plexus in someone who is suffering from dengue fever (where there is a decrease in blood platelets or platelets that play a role in the blood clotting process).
Well, it looks like the condition of your nasal cavity is dry at this time. This can be caused by environmental factors, where the humidity is being reduced. This condition triggers you to more easily experience nosebleeds on the front or anterior epistaxis.
Now, you should stop picking your nose. If it is really needed, use olive oil as a lubricant. Be diligent about washing your nose by breathing in clean water.
If a nosebleeds occur later that are difficult to stop even though the pressure has been done or if the blood to flow into the esophagus, immediately consult a doctor nearby. So that further inspection can be done.
Thus hopefully useful.
