Nosebleed

Nosebleed (epistaxis) is quite a common complaint. Usually it is an anterior nosebleed, noticed when the blood drains out through the nostrils. A posterior nosebleed is less common; blood can flow from a rupture in the back of the nose into the mouth, out both nostrils, and down into the stomach to cause nausea and vomiting. Posterior nosebleeds may need medical attention

A nosebleed is caused by a rupture of one of the many blood vessels in the nose. It can happen from a blow or injury, but can also happen spontaneously. Most people have a nosebleed at some time in their lives, most commonly under the age of 10 or over the age of 50 years. They are more frequent in males than in females

Causes
Treatment

Direct pressure. Firmly pinch the soft part of the nose with the thumb and forefinger for 5 – 20 minutes. Breathe through the mouth. Lean the head a little forward, so that blood does not drain down into the mouth, down the throat, and cause nausea
