Dangerous If Frequent Nosebleeds?

Hello, thanks for the question.
Nosebleeds or epistaxis is a condition where bleeding from the nose occurs due to rupture of blood vessels in the nose. The blood vessels in hiding are indeed very fragile so it is very easy to rupture and cause bleeding. Nosebleeds are generally not life threatening, but you should still find out the cause of nosebleeds. Some things that can cause nosebleeds include:
Nasal injury / trauma
As a result of the process of snot that is too tight or accidentally pry the nose too strong
Blood disorders, for example chemophilia,
Viral infections, such as DHF.
Side effects of medications, such as aspirin, anticoagulants, or excessive breathing medications.
Tumors of the nasal cavity or nasopharynx.
As a result of certain diseases, such as hypertension
Nosebleeds generally stop on their own in a few minutes. To stop the nosebleed you should position the body by sitting or standing and not lying down, leaning forward, removing and draining blood flowing into the mouth, using your thumb and index finger to squeeze the nose for about 10 minutes, and you can also do a cold compress on nostril to accelerate the cessation of bleeding. If nosebleeds do not stop in 30 minutes or nosebleeds are recurring frequently, or nosebleeds occur in children under 2 years of age, or nosebleeds may be accompanied by high blood pressure, consumption of blood-thinning medications, or nosebleeds accompanied by fever and other signs of bleeding. you should immediately consult a doctor. The doctor will conduct a thorough examination including additional examinations, such as blood tests, x-rays, CT scans, MRI, and so forth to find the cause of the complaint. Treatment is adjusted to the cause of the complaint, the initial treatment if the bleeding still hasn't stopped, the doctor will generally put a tampon to stop the bleeding. The next treatment will be adjusted to the cause of the complaint.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
