Hello,

Nose bleed is called epistaxis.It is very common due to local inflammatory diseases, infections, and trauma.Sometimes liver disorders,sinus and nasopharyngeal abnormalities or serious causes like bleeding disorders and leukmias can also cause epistaxis.

As you are having epistaxis and headaches,so the chances of sinus headaches is there.Are you having any nasal congestion along with?

Whenever nose bleeds occur,apply direct pressure by squeezing the nostrils together for 5-20 mintutes.Keep the head elevated but not hyperextended so that blood does not spill in the pharynx.Also use a humidifier at home as epistaxis is sometimes caused by dryness in the home.If still bleeding occurs,then it is better to consult an ENT specialist so that saline nasal spraying and packing can be done.

Hope this helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional doubts.
