Hello, thanks for the question.
Nosebleeds or epistaxis is blood coming out of the nose due to rupture of the front (anterior) or back (posterior) nasal cavity. Nosebleeds that last briefly, only a few seconds to minutes are generally not dangerous and are usually caused by rupture of the front nasal arteries, can be caused by a process of nasal runny nose that is too tight, due to nose picking, injury / trauma to the nose, irritation, etc. . However, if the nosebleeds are experienced continuously, lasts longer than 30 minutes, a lot of blood volume, occurs in children under 2 years of age, there is bleeding from the nose and throat, difficulty breathing, irregular heartbeat, consumption of blood-thinning drugs , accompanied by reddish spots or rashes on the skin, high fever, after nose surgery, nosebleeds accompanied by bleeding from other body parts, or nosebleeds accompanied by high blood pressure. In patients with hypertension / high blood pressure, blood vessels in the peripheral or the edge of the body will experience narrowing and pressure in these blood vessels will increase so that when blood pressure rises too high these blood vessels can rupture and bleeding occurs. Nosebleeds or bleeding due to high blood pressure usually come from the front and back of the nose blood vessels. In this condition, direct treatment by a doctor is needed, so it is better to immediately bring the patient to the nearest hospital to get treatment. The doctor will stop the bleeding by placing a tampon with sterile gauze or cotton, then a thorough examination is done to find out the cause of the complaint. The doctor may also conduct additional examinations if needed, such as blood tests, x-rays, CT scans, MRI, and so forth. Handling will be adjusted to the cause of the complaint. Some things you can do at home to stop bleeding include:
Sit up straight and don't lie down
Remove and drain blood flowing into the mouth
Use your thumb and index finger to press the nose for about 10 minutes.
Place a cold compress on the base of the nose
If the bleeding continues, for more than 20 minutes, you should immediately take it to the nearest hospital.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
