Frequent Nosebleeds Since Childhood And The Blood Clots?
I want to ask. From a young age I had frequent nosebleeds, when I was examined the doctor said that the membranes on my nose were too soft. I don’t know what membrane is meant. And he said this nosebleed would continue until the 17th. I am now 18 years old, and last night at the same time I had a nosebleed which was quite a lot of doctors and the flow was fast. The nosebleed will stop when it comes out a kind of sorry “snot blood clots” like menstrual blood clots. Previously, I had a lab check but the results were high leukocytes. Why is that? Will there be nosebleeds for life? Then how to cure it ??
Thank you Roro Nur Sabila for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, nosebleeds can occur because of a broken blood vessel in the nasal cavity, this condition can be caused by several conditions such as:
- brittle nasal blood vessels (usually due to dry air)
- an infection in the nose or sinuses
- hit the nose
- the habit of picking your nose
- use of blood thinners
- a blood clotting disorder
In general, the nosebleed condition can stop on its own, especially with pressure on the nose to stop the bleeding that occurs. Although there are times when the nosebleed condition can be life threatening, if the nosebleed is too much and it doesn't stop. Regarding the membrane that is meant here is probably the membrane of the nasal area known as the mucosal layer, where this mucosal layer contains many blood vessels, which if these blood vessels are fragile, bleeding will easily occur which if occurs in the nose is known as a nosebleed. Meanwhile, regarding high leukocyte levels, this usually indicates an infection process in the body, it can occur in the nose, it can also occur in other parts of the body. To overcome this problem, of course it is necessary to find out in advance the underlying cause of this complaint, if the condition is due to infection then the state of infection needs to be above with the provision of drugs, if it occurs due to fragile blood vessels due to dry environmental conditions, then a humidifier can be given. to improve environmental humidity conditions. Therefore, it is better if this matter can be directly consulted with the doctor who examined you because the doctor in question will certainly better know the cause of the nosebleed condition that you are currently experiencing.
