Hello and good day to you.

Thank you for your question.

I understand that you are concerned with your health issue. I will try to help you.

Nose bleeds are more common than you think. Over 60% of the population will encounter nosebleeds at least once in their lifetime. It is caused by the burst of blood vessels from the lining of the nose. Common causes of nosebleeds includes:

  • Blowing or picking nose very hard
  • Blood thinning medication such as Warfarin
  • Environmental changes in humidity and temperature cause the nose to dry and crack
  • Allergies
  • Common colds
  • Injury or broken nose
  • Deviated septum

Certain nosebleeds require immediate medical intervention such :

  • Blood loss is large (More than a cup).
  • Bleeding doesn’t stop upon pressure.
  • Prolonged bleeding ( Over 20min)

The exact cause of nosebleeds is best to be determined by a healthcare professional by conducting a further medical investigation. You are advised to speak to a doctor to get the proper medical advice for your condition. Proper treatment can be given upon proper history taking.

Hope this answers your question. Thank you
