Nosebleeds can occur due to trauma, exposure to warm dry air more common in winter months, rhinitis, infections, vigorous blowing, foreign bodies and deviated nasal septum. Only a consultation with an ENT specialist can help diagnose.
During an episode of nose bleeding: the patient must be made to sit upright, this reduces blood pressure in the veins of the nose. Further you should bend forward, this will avoid swallowing blood, which can irritate the stomach. Using the thumb and index finger pinch nostrils shut. Pinching sends pressure to the bleeding point on the nasal septum and often stops the flow of blood.
