Knowing Nosebleed

Nosebleed is common among children who are involved in frequent nose picking and people suffering from chronic rhinitis and allergies who tend to blow their nose often. Nosebleed is also reported in cold climatic regions and arid areas where breathing dry air can damage the mucous lining of the nose and make it susceptible to bleeding. Nosebleed can also occur because of injuries or infections. Other reasons include hypertension, clotting disorders, drug abuse, alcohol consumption, etc. Whenever you sustain a nosebleed, don't panic. Just sit in a relaxed position and pinch your nose for about 5-10 minutes and breathe through your mouth. Wait till the bleeding stops without speaking to anyone, sneezing or coughing. Avoid blowing your nose and apply ice pack on your nose and adjoining areas on your face. If the bleeding persists or if nose bleeding is recurrent, consult a doctor immediately.
