Nosebleeds are a condition in which blood is drained from the nose. Basically, nosebleeds are not always caused by dangerous conditions, but if complaints often recur, then this condition should be watched out for and examined by a doctor so that proper treatment can be given.
The various possible causes of nosebleeds include:
The habit of picking the nose Being in a cold and dry environment (so that the mucous membranes of the nose are dry and prone to injury) Passing your nose too hard Trauma or collision in the nose Deviation of the nasal septum (crooked nasal bones) Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses / small cavities in the bones face) Blood clotting disorders. Consumption of certain drugs. Tumors in the nasal cavity
If you have a nosebleed then as a first aid at home you can press your nose with your thumb and forefinger for 10 minutes (so that the inhalation is done through the mouth). Make sure you are in an upright position with your body leaning forward. Cold compresses on the nose area can also help stop nosebleeds.
However, be aware if the nosebleed lasts more than 30 minutes, the blood volume is very large, the nosebleeds often recur, previous collisions or injuries, or are accompanied by other symptoms such as shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, fever or vomiting of blood.
