why do we get random nose bleeds

Most people who develop nose bleeding can handle the problem without the need of a treatment by a health-care professional if they follow the step-by-step Lean forward slightly with the head tilted forward.


Leaning back or tilting the head back allows the blood to run back into the sinuses and throat, and can cause gagging or inhaling of blood. Spit out any blood that may collect in your mouth and throat. It may cause, or if swallowed. Gently, blow any out of your nose.


The nosebleed may worsen slightly when you do this but this is expected. Pinch all the soft parts of the nose together between the thumb and index finger. Press firmly toward the face - compressing the pinched parts of the nose against the bones of the face. Breathe through your mouth as you do this. Hold the nose for at least five minutes. Repeat as necessary until the nose has stopped bleeding. Sit quietly, keeping the head higher than the level of the heart.


Do not lay flat or put your head between your legs. Apply ice (wrapped in a towel) to nose and cheeks afterwards. Oxymetazoline (Afrin), (Neo-Synephrine, ), or phenylephrine-DM- (Duravent) nasal spray can be used short-term to help with congestion and minor bleeding if you do not have. However, these sprays should not be used for more than a few days at a time, as they can make congestion and nosebleeds worse. Stuffing cotton or tissue into your nose is not recommended.
