Hello, thank you for the question
A nosebleed is bleeding that flows out of the nose from the nasal cavity or the back of the nose to the throat. Nosebleeds are not a disease, but a symptom
of an abnormality. Nearly 90% of nosebleeds can stop on their own. The source of bleeding must be identified and corrected to treat nosebleeds effectively.
Causes of nosebleeds include:
1. Trauma from frequent rubbing of the nose
2. The existence of an underlying disease in the nose, for example: rhinosinusitis, allergic rhinitis
3. Systemic diseases, such as blood vessel disorders, fever
4. History of drug use
5. Tumors, both benign and malignant that occur in the nose, sinuses, or
6. Genetic disorders
7. Environmental influences, for example living in a very high area, low air pressure, or an environment with very dry air.
To find out the cause of the nosebleed, a detailed interview and examination by a doctor is necessary. There may be tests such as back nose visualization to CT scan.
Steps that can be taken at home when experiencing a nosebleed include squeezing the nostrils for a few minutes and pointing the head forward to prevent blood from swallowing or entering the respiratory tract.
It is necessary to watch out for some cases of nosebleeds which are signs of malignancy in the nasopharynx such as disorders in the ears such as ringing in the ears or hearing loss, lumps in the neck area, headaches, nasal congestion, and significant weight loss. Immediately consult a doctor if you encounter these symptoms.
So hopefully that can help
