What is epistaxis?

Nosebleed. The majority of nosebleeds come from the front of the nose, and are harmless. Triggers include dry, hot air and picking at the nose. In rare cases, epistaxis may be caused by tumors in the nose or clotting problems in blood.

Symptoms of epistaxis

  • Nosebleed

Questions your doctor may ask to check for epistaxis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose epistaxis

  • Are you having nose bleeding?

Treatment for epistaxis

First aid consists of leaning forward and pinching the soft part of the nose. Gargling ice water can help too. If this fails, a doctor can pack the nose with cotton or seal the area with a chemical. Repeated nosebleeds may need further evaluation by a specialist.
