Nose bleeding is quite common at any age. Here are some tips to follow when this situation happens.Among the elderly people, nose bleeding is often an indication of high blood pressure. An injury to the nose or skull may also cause nose bleeding.
If a mixture of blood and watery fluid is present, this strongly indicates a fracture of the base of the skull which may have followed a severe blow on the head. It is advisable to have an x-ray of the skull if this is the case.Another cause of nasal hemorrhage may be an inflammation or irritation inside the nose. Other causes of nosebleed include tuberculosis, vitamin K deficiency, allergies, polyp, nasal infection, nasal tumors, common cold, heavy blowing of the nose, and nose picking among many others.
