Nosebleed

Nosebleed, a.k.a. epistaxis in medical term, is bleeding from the blood vessels in the nose. Nosebleeds are common. The lining of your nose contains many tiny blood vessels that lie close to the surface and are easily damaged.

Dry air is the most common reason of nosebleeds. Other causes may include scratching or picking, irritants, injury, upper respiratory infection, medications, etc.< br/>
A sudden but infrequent nosebleed is usually not much of a concern. Frequent nosebleeds may indicate a more serious medical problem.
