Almost every time that a person has to go through the experience of a nosebleed, the entire situation is very dramatic and always looks dangerous and frightening. Fortunately for us, nosebleeds are not always as dangerous and serious as they look and usually they can easily be controlled at home. However, sometimes the nosebleeds do occur because of some serious reasons and will need proper medical help.
The most common causes for a nosebleed to occur is because of a direct injury to the nose, for instance a blow to the nose from the outside can cause the nose to suddenly start bleeding. Or even sometimes, internally also the nose is irritated such as due to the picking of nose or an injury of sorts that can cause a nosebleed. However, these kinds of nosebleeds though might look very scary actually need to be treated as any other external wound would have been treated in your home.
However, nosebleeds just occurring without any external or internal visible trauma having been caused to it will obviously have some other reasons behind them which will require some looking into and most times also some serious medical help as per what the results of the check-ups say. For instance, such nosebleeds are often the result of the inability of the blood in the body as a whole to clot. This is caused by the probable thinning of the blood that might have occurred as side effects to some medication that you might have been taking such as aspirin etc. Sometimes, liver related diseases also cause nosebleeds because of the same reason of the inability of the blood to clot. Both these situations will need medical attention and you can take the nosebleeds as a sign.
Also, there may be a direct relation of the nosebleeds to your nose as when there might be a nasal cancer that might have formed inside the nose. Sometimes even the bursting of a blood vessel or even the presence of an abnormal blood vessel inside your nose can cause the nosebleeds to occur. Very rarely even high blood pressure causes nosebleeds although this is not a very common cause for the nose to start bleeding.
Whatever the cause of the nosebleeds, if you are not sure of the reason why your nose is bleeding such as an injury to your nose directly from the inside or from the outside, then it is always safer to get yourself checked to see if the reason for the nosebleeds is something more serious or not.
