When the thin blood vessels inside the nose, which are usually located in the nasal wall, suddenly rupture, blood flows out of the nose, which is called hemorrhage.



Nose bleeding is said to be a very common occurrence. In the United States, about 60 percent of the population at all ages experience hemorrhage at least once in their lifetime. It is interesting to note that of all these people who bleed, only about 6% will need follow-up and medical care.


What are the types of bleeding?

As we said, when the thin vessels in the wall of your nose suddenly rupture, nosebleeds occur. Nosebleeds sometimes start in front of the nose and sometimes from the back of the nose. So, in general, there are two general types of nosebleeds, which we will name and describe below.

A wall separates the two parts of the nose, the right side of the nose and the left side of the nose. This wall is called the septum. The nasal septum has many blood vessels. These vessels have a thin wall and can rupture due to a blow to the face or being scratched by a finger inserted into the nose. Most types of hemorrhoids are said to start in the lower part of the septum, which is located near the nostrils.


This type of bleeding is less common and originates in the back of the nose. This bleeding is more common in the elderly and people with high blood pressure or people with severe traumas to the head, face and skull. In general, posterior hemorrhage is not very common.


Why does bleeding occur?

The causes of nosebleeds are various, but it is said that there are two main causes, which we will discuss below.

Massive bleeding from the nose is possible when a person’s head, face, or skull is injured and the nasal bones are fractured or a fracture occurs in the skull. If you have a trauma to your head, face and skull and subsequent severe bleeding from your nose. Be sure to see your doctor for further examinations

One of the common causes of bleeding is dry air or hot weather. When a person is in such an environment, the inner tissue of the nose is stimulated and the nasal membrane becomes dry. Dryness of the inside of the nose makes you feel itchy.

When you insert your finger and foreign body to relieve this itching and dryness inside your nose, the arteries in the septal wall or the walls on either side of the nose rupture and bleeding from the nose occurs. Some people get colds in the cold season, or in other words, colds due to viral infections. Frequent fins in these people, as well as exposure to cold and dry weather outside, make them very prone to bleeding.

After listing the above causes that can cause massive nosebleeds with clots, we can point out some cases that may cause frequent nosebleeds. These are:

People with a variety of allergies, such as hay fever and other disorders associated with intranasal itching, usually subconsciously put their finger in the nose. By stimulating the tissues and arteries around the nose and damaging the arteries, recurrent bleeding may occur in these people.

If a person fines too hard to empty the contents of the nose, the pressure inside the nose can cause pressure on the blood vessels and rupture of the superficial blood vessels.

People with blood clotting disorders are more likely than others to experience large blood clots. In explaining this part, we must say that congenital disorders such as hemophilia, Osler-Weber-Rando disease, as well as hemorrhagic telangiectasias, all of which disrupt the normal blood clotting process, can be the cause of frequent and chronic bleeding from the nose.

In a group of people who are taking blood-thinning drugs or people who are taking anticoagulants, it will be much harder to stop nosebleeds. These people may experience prolonged or heavier bleeding following small scratches.  These include aspirin, warfarin, and Clopidogrel.

Some nasal medications, such as antihistamines as well as corticosteroid sprays, can cause bleeding. It is said that if a person uses a nasal spray regularly, the spray head will irritate the nasal cavity and thus make the person more prone to nosebleeds.

Some supplements may cause blood pressure and blood thinning. By diluting the blood, it causes any scratches and slight irritation that can cause a small amount of bleeding in the nose due to the interruption in normal coagulation, causing continuous bleeding, which is very difficult to stop. Some of these natural supplements are as follows:

Diseases associated with nosebleeds

In addition to the above, we must say that there is a group of diseases and disorders that increase the risk of massive and recurrent hemorrhage in a person with kidney and liver disease. is. In other words, disrupting the cessation of bleeding and natural clotting can continue to bleed from the nose and increase the volume of blood lost through the nose. Here are some of these disorders and diseases that can be associated with heavy bleeding from the nose and clots.

People with chronic congestive heart failure or uncontrolled high blood pressure are more likely than healthy people to have hemorrhage.

Various tumors, both benign and malignant, may be present in the nose and sinuses. All types of tumors can cause you to have frequent and massive hemorrhages. It is said that this is more likely in smokers and the elderly than others.

Your nose has a special building that this building may be looking for. Congenital problems or traumas, blows and injuries as well as cosmetic surgeries can interfere with normal functioning. In these cases, there is a high risk of recurrent nosebleeds.

Cocaine is usually inhaled. This drug can cause rupture of blood vessels in the sector and nasal walls. Bleeding as a result is one of the complaints that inhaled cocaine users complain about.

And if you have nosebleeds that involve one or more of the following, you will definitely need medical attention and medical examinations. If nosebleeds do not stop after 20 minutes, keep in mind that doctors say this is about ten minutes in children. Bleeding from the nose is caused by a trauma to the head, neck and face

If the appearance of the nose changes due to injury, damage or trauma, or you feel a fracture and pressure on your nose.

Occasionally you may experience recurrent heavy bleeding with minor bleeding for minor reasons. At this time, we also recommend that you see your doctor.

What are the ways to treat or reduce nosebleeds?

If you or those around you have severe bleeding, you can do the following steps to stop or reduce nosebleeds.

First action

You should sit up straight and only lean forward slightly when your body is in this position. It tends to lean back slightly to prevent blood from dripping on your face.

But know that the best way is to bend slightly forward instead of bending your head back and bending backwards. In fact, bending over bending backwards is preferable. By doing this, blood does not enter the throat and back of the throat, and therefore there is no possibility of irritation of the mucosa, followed by nausea and vomiting. At this time, the person should try to breathe through the mouth instead of the nose and just keep calm.


The second action

Avoid placing any device that blocks the nose. Doctors say that in cases of severe bleeding, it is better not to use cotton pads, tampons and handkerchiefs arbitrarily. This causes more bleeding, and in fact, by making the arteries more sensitive, these tools cause the arteries to be damaged and bleeding to occur. It is best to use soft, damp wipes to clean a bleeding nose


Third action

Squeeze the nose gently. It is recommended to hold the soft and fleshy part of the nose under the nasal bones with one finger and press it for ten minutes. This pressure causes the blood vessels that are bleeding in these parts to be compressed and the outlet You should be disconnected during these ten minutes while holding your nose, you should not put pressure on it. Because if pressure is applied, the bleeding will continue again. If you have a large amount of bleeding from the nose that has not stopped after ten minutes of pressure, repeat this procedure for another ten minutes. If after 30 minutes the nosebleed does not stop and the volume of bleeding from the nose is very large, go to the emergency room immediately to take the necessary treatment.
