Nose Bleeds - Overview

The nose is a part of the body loaded with blood vessels, so it may be prone to bleeding.

When one has nose bleeds, it usually is not that serious. It can be treated at home, but sometimes, medical help is needed. Sometimes the cause of this problem is not dangerous (such as a slight infection or a sore) but sometimes, the cause can be more perilous, as in the case of hemophilia, liver disease, or high blood pressure.

There are two types of natural nose bleeds, based on where they initiate.

(1) Anterior nosebleeds make for more than ninety percent of all nose bleeds. They are not difficult to control by certain measures that a physician might indicate. The bleeding comes from a blood vessel in the nasal septum.

(2) Posterior nose bleeds are much less common and usually occur with the elderly. The bleeding comes from an artery in the back part of the nose. This type is more complex and usually requires admittance to the hospital.

In other cases, nose bleeds usually come from some kind of trauma to the nose. Because it is situated in a tricky place on the head, it is not that difficult to hurt.

In this case, there is a first-aid method that might help. The injured person should sit with the upper part of the body slanted forward and the mouth open to spit out the blood. Another person should check his nose, and remove any objects that might be in it. Then, the patient should pinch the nose, holding it for about five minutes until the bleeding has ceased. After that, ice should be applied to the nose and cheeks.


Certain precautions may help prevent further nose bleeds, or, at least, reduce the frequency of their appearance. One should avoid smoking, picking one’s nose, any hard straining, bending to lift something heavy, etc.
