Hello Mar Yanti,
Nasal polyps are abnormal growths of the inner lining of the nose that are generally caused by chronic inflammation. Nasal polyps are often found in sufferers of allergic rhinitis, chronic sinusitis, and asthma. Often the small nasal polyps don't give any symptoms. When there are polyps that are large or in large numbers, it can give symptoms such as:
The ability to smell (smell) is reduced
Nasal polyps can cause nosebleeds, but they are very rare. The most common causes of nosebleeds are dry air and trauma from picking your nose. Nosebleeds can also be caused by blood clotting disorders, high blood pressure, the use of drugs such as heparin, nasal vascular disorders, nasal cavity tumors, and so on.
Nosebleeds to watch out for are when the blood doesn't stop spontaneously, nosebleeds are getting more frequent, accompanied by other signs of spontaneous bleeding (bruising, bleeding gums, bloody bowel movements), can't smell at all. You can further check with an ENT specialist.
When experiencing a nosebleed, you should position yourself sitting and head slightly forward. No need to look up (this position will actually make the blood from the nose flow down the throat and be swallowed, making you feel nauseous), just press the nostrils for a few minutes. If the blood does not stop spontaneously, go to the nearest health facility immediately. Avoid picking your nose and using long-term nasal sprays / inhalers.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
