Summary about Nosebleed in English

A nosebleed may be scary, but it rarely indicates a medical problem. The nose contains several blood vessels near the surface in both the front and the back, and these vessels are fragile and bleed easily. Anterior nosebleeds occur when blood vessels in front of your nose break and bleed. Posterior nosebleeds happen in the back or deepest part of the nose, and the blood flows down the back of the throat. Posterior nosebleeds could be dangerous.

Preventive Measures of Nosebleed

The preventive measures for a nosebleed are as under:

  • Use a humidifier to keep the air moist in the house.
  • Avoid picking the nose.
  • Limit aspirin intake after discussing with the doctor because it may thin your blood and cause nosebleeds.
  • Use decongestants and antihistamines in moderation.
  • Use a gel or saline spray to keep your nasal passages moist.

Nosebleed Treatment

Depending on the cause, treatment of nosebleed may include:

  • Nasal packing. An inflatable latex balloon or special sponge or foam is inserted into your nose to apply pressure at the site of the bleed. A healthcare professional usually leave the material in place between 24 and 48 hours before removing it.
  • Cauterization. The procedure involves applying silver nitrate or heat energy to seal the bleeding blood vessel.
  • Medication adjustments. Taking fewer or no blood-thinning medications can help. Additionally, blood pressure medications may be required. 
  • Removal of foreign bodies if that is the reason for the nose bleeding.
  • Surgical repair of the broken nose or correction of the deviated septum if it is the reason for the nosebleed.
  • Ligation. In this procedure, the blood vessel responsible for bleeding is tied off to prevent further bleeding.
