Taking control of nosebleeds

Joel Streed | (TNS) Mayo Clinic News Network

At some point in their lifetimes, most people will experience a nosebleed. It’s common for adults and children, especially during dry winter months.

Although rarely life-threatening, nosebleeds can cause anxiety and sometimes are difficult to control.

Why do nosebleeds occur?

Epistaxis, more commonly known as a nosebleed, occurs when a small blood vessel in the nose ruptures. The bleeding most commonly arises from the nasal septum, the partition that divides the two sides of your nose on the inside. The rupture can occur when something traumatizes or irritates the mucosa lining of the septum. Common causes are nose-picking, forcefully blowing the nose or an impact to the outside of the nose or face.
