Hello Alin Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Blood clots that come out of the nose and out of the mouth can come from the nasal cavity, oral cavity, or come from the inside as in the sinus region, or even from the skull head or from the brain. To make sure there is actually a lot of information that needs to be explored deeper, especially regarding the history of head injuries that you have experienced. From the CT scan that you mentioned found several conditions including broken bones in the bones that make up the face, skull or head fractures, broken bones in the eye area, and bleeding in the brain or head, and blood clots in the head and brain.
From CT svan you mentioned the condition is quite serious. And usually some action is taken to evacuate the bleeding, and also to reconstruct some broken facial bones. Because if left untreated it will certainly lead to various kinds of complications even if the bleeding condition is quite a lot can threaten your life at that time. The information that we need to know also includes how the treatment and treatment you received at the time, was the operation performed for you?
Here are some possible conditions that can cause the discharge of membranes and blood clots from the nose and mouth such as:
Epistaxis, nosebleeds or bleeding from the nasal cavity. Bleeding in the nasal cavity can fall into the oral cavity so that blood can come out when you remove saliva.
Bleeding gums due to cavities, tartar, inflammation of the gums. But usually this complaint causes bleeding from the oral cavity
Oral sores such as thrush
Gastrointestinal bleeding, for example due to peptic ulcers or more serious conditions rupture of esophageal varices (blood vessels in the esophagus)
Blood disorders, for example due to blood cancer lacking blood clotting factors, vitamin K deficiency
Decreased platelets, for example due to dengue fever, blood cancer
Nosebleeds is a condition where there is bleeding in the nasal cavity, which causes blood to come out of the nose in a few moments when it can be in seconds or even up to 10 minutes. And in general, mild nosebleeds will stop on their own in a fast time. However, if you are pregnant, the condition can be influenced by hormonal effects or changes that occur during pregnancy. So hamul mothers tend to be more prone to nosebleeds, especially if the womb has entered the second trimester and so on.

Follow the steps you can take when there is a nosebleed or bleeding from the nose:
Sit up straight and keep your head down a little, don't sleep and don't raise your head up because it can make blood flow into your throat and oral cavity
Pinch the middle of the nostril tightly with the thumb and index finger, hold for 10 minutes without stopping to remove the nose. When pinching the nose try to breathe through the mouth
If you have a nosebleed nose after 10 minutes, close the nostrils for 10 minutes
Compress the nose with ice or an ice-filled jar
If the bleeding does not stop for 20 minutes for example you should immediately ask for help to the nearest health facility
However, this condition needs to be confirmed again through in-depth interviews, direct physical examination on you, as well as additional examinations that help for example blood tests, x-rays, endoscopy, or CT head scans, and so on. This needs to be examined to determine whether the cause is related to the trauma or head injury that you have experienced, or is it the effect of the surgery you have experienced (if you have previously performed surgery), or is a new problem or condition that needs to be found.
However, it should be noted if you feel guilty, blood clots from the nose that is not normal or unusual, accompanied by headaches, nausea, vomiting, and clear clear fluid from the nose or mouth that is not immediately check yourself to the doctor at the nearest health facility.
