Nose bleeds generally are not serious and can be simply stopped. Here are some quick ways you can try if you are prone to nose bleeds during the summer season.
Summers in India are harsh, and the side effect of the heat leads to health problems like dehydration, heat strokes, skin rashes and many more. A common problem that happens during this season is nosebleed. Although it is most common in children, a nosebleed can also affect adults when the mercury rises.
So what leads to nosebleed? When the minute blood capillaries burst due to hot air, or due to nose-picking, the protective mucous coating inside the nose gets dry which leads to bleeding. Although rare, the inability of the blood to clot can also cause the nose to bleed at times. In some cases, high blood pressure can also be a reason.
The medical term for a nosebleed is epistaxis. Because of the position of the nose – right in the middle of the face – and its high density of blood vessels, most of us will have had at least one nosebleed at some time during our lives.
