We truly understand your concerns regarding nosebleed. For your information, your condition may have multifactorial causes, such as:
Nosebleeds should be taken seriously as excessive bleeding can lead to serious complications. This bloody nose problem is easily managed with treatment from home if not serious or prolonged.
Squeeze your nose for 5 to 10 minutes. This method is done without lifting the head up for fear of blood may flow into the mouth or throat.
You can also put ice on your nose. This method will help cool the nostrils thus narrowing the blood vessels in the nose and stopping the bleeding.
This method can be tried if other methods cannot stop the bleeding. You need to wet a piece of cloth with ‘epinephrine’ medicine and insert the cloth into your nose. This medicine will help narrow the blood vessels in the nose thus helping to stop the bleeding.
This method involves the doctor using a device on the affected blood vessel to stop the bleeding immediately.
In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints.
