The Cause Is Often Sudden Nosebleeds In Adults?
Hello warahmatullohi wabarokatuh, good night
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. A nosebleed is a situation characterized by bleeding from one or both nostrils. Even though it has a scary impression, often a nosebleed is not a dangerous thing. Among the causes of nosebleeds are:
Injury to the nose Alcohol consumption A crooked nose due to injury The process of blowing your nose too hard Accidentally injuring the inside of the nose when picking your nose High blood pressure Dry and cold air Use of illegal drugs
In dealing with people with nosebleeds, what you can do is to position them sitting with their head tilted forward and slightly lowered, then pressing the two nostrils tightly so that no nosebleed comes out. Ask the person to breathe through the mouth during the process. Keep pressing for about 10-20 minutes, or until the blood flow stops. Take the person to the nearest hospital emergency room if:
Nosebleeds last more than 30 minutes Nosebleeds occur in children less than 2 years of age The blood comes out quite a lot Often nosebleeds with a short time lag Vomiting blood Difficulty breathing Irregular heartbeats Nosebleeds occur after surgery in the nasal area Nosebleeds after injury The skin becomes pale
Or any other condition that makes the person appear overwhelmed or struggling in your judgment. Regarding what specialist is right, because the condition of the nosebleed, the main focus is on the nose, so we suggest checking with an ENT specialist. On the way, if the nosebleed was caused by high blood pressure, your ENT doctor may ask for help from an internal medicine specialist. But at first, checking with an ENT doctor is the right step. If indicated, your ENT doctor will do a CT scan or X-ray to find out what causes your friend to have frequent nosebleeds in terms of head structure.
Meanwhile, what you can tell your friends regarding the prevention of nosebleeds is to be careful when picking your nose, don't blow your nose too hard, stop smoking, if you use nasal lozenges, use as directed, and avoid physical activity or lifting too much weight. weight. I wish your friend a speedy recovery.
So, hopefully this is useful.
