Why is nose bleeding?

As a rule, this is not dangerous and is understandable. But this is not always the case.

Sometimes a person may have nosebleeds, regardless of age. As a rule, this is not dangerous and is understandable. But this is not always the case, since nosebleeds can be caused by quite serious reasons that you do not know about. Now we will consider what needs to be done if blood is flowing from the nose and in what cases it is worth contacting a specialist and what is ksalol.

Causes of bleeding
High blood pressure. The nose contains a large number of nerve endings and thin blood vessels that can rupture due to high blood pressure.

Mechanical damage. Due to the fragility of the capillaries in the nose, blood can flow as a result of even slight damage, for example, with a handkerchief in case of a runny nose. Also, during a cold, blood vessels swell and may burst.

Dry air. Now this is one of the most pressing reasons, because in winter, in frost or in a room where the air is dry, the nasal mucosa dries up, which can also cause nosebleeds.

In addition to problems in the nasal cavity, there are a number of reasons related to disorders of the whole body that can cause bleeding. For example, with some diseases of the cardiovascular system, hypertension, atherosclerotic lesions of the cerebral vessels, circulatory problems in the cervical spine, blood circulation is impaired, as a result of which the pressure in the nasal capillaries increases. Thus, nosebleeds can signal serious health problems.

Also, experts note that nosebleeds for no apparent reason can be a symptom of blood clotting problems as a result of vitamin deficiency or drug overdose.

Among other things, the cause of bleeding can be an increased body temperature as a result of overheating in the sun, fever during the development of an infectious disease, as well as in pregnant women as a result of a hormonal surge.

What if your nose is bleeding?
Sit up straight with your head tilted slightly forward. Remember that throwing your head back is prohibited – blood should not drain into the throat area.
Squeeze the soft area of ​​the bridge of the nose (maybe the wings of the nose?) For 10-15 minutes, breathe through your mouth.
Apply something cool to your nose (snow or wet handkerchief)
If blood continues to flow after 15 minutes, call an ambulance.
Remember that frequent bleeding is a good reason to see your doctor.
