In some cases,
nosebleeds medically termed
epistaxis can be associated with an underlying illness.
high blood pressure, malaria, scarlet fever, sinusitis, and typhoid fever are all known to
cause nosebleeds, some of which can be serious and result in significant blood loss. Conditions that cause increased bleeding tendencies, such as hemophilia, leukemia, thrombocytopenia (a below-normal
concentration of platelets in the blood), aplastic anemia, or
liver disease, also may be implicated in
Nosebleeds are much more common in children than they are in in adults. This is no doubt largely due to the fact that children like to stick their fingers and other objects into their nostrils. In addition, children's tissues, including the mucous membranes lining the nose, are also thinner than those of adults and therefore more vulnerable to damage.
There are two classifications of nosebleeds, depending on where
in the nose the blood is coming from. Posterior nosebleeds primarily afflict elderly people and those with high blood pressure. In this type of
nosebleed, blood comes from the rear of the nose and runs down the back of the mouth into the throat, no
matter what position the person is in. The blood is usually dark red in color, although it can be bright red.If the bleeding is severe, blood can flow from the nostrils as well.
The overwhelming majority of nosebleeds are anterior nosebleeds, in which bright-red blood flows from
the front part of the nose. Most often they are the result of some type of trauma to the nasal tissues. If the
person stands or sits, the flow of blood comes out of one or both nostrils. If the person lies on his
or her back, the blood may flow backward, into the throat. This type of nosebleed can be frightening, and it may look as if there is a lot of blood, but in reality it is not usually serious and very little blood is
