Causes of Nosebleed-Epistaxis
« on: May 05, 2018, 12:59:41 AM »
Causes of Epistaxis (Nosebleed)
 Nosebleeds can be caused by :
 
  • An injury
  • Dryness and irritation inside your nose
  • Vigorously rubbing your nose, or any other kind  of physical irritation, or trauma, can also lead to nosebleeds.
  • Drugs - aspirin and anticoagulants.
  • Disorders of platelets are more likely to be a  problem than clotting factor deficiency.
  • Abnormalities of blood vessels in the elderly  arteriosclerotic vessels prolong bleeding. Hereditary haemorrhagic  telangiectasia (Osler-Rendu-Weber syndrome) causes recurrent epistaxis from  nasal telangiectases.
  • Malignancy of the nose may present with bleeding  - juvenile angiofibroma is a highly vascular benign tumour that typically  presents in adolescent males.
  •     Dry  air when your nasal membranes dry out, they're more susceptible to bleeding  and infections
  •     Nose  picking
  •    Other  causes of nosebleeds include:
  •     Acute  sinusitis
  •     Allergies
  •     Aspirin use
  •     Hemophilia (and other bleeding disorders)
  •     Blood  thinners (anticoagulants), such as warfarin and heparin
  •     Chemical irritants, such as ammonia
  •     Chronic sinusitis
  •     Cocaine use
  •     Common  cold
  •     Deviated septum
  •     Foreign body in the nose
  •     Nasal  sprays, such as those used to treat allergies, if used frequently
  •     Nonallergic rhinitis
  •     Trauma  to the nose
  •   Less  common causes of nosebleeds include:
  •     Alcohol  use
  •     Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia
  •     Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP)
  •     Leukemia
  •     Nasal  polyps
  •     Nasal  surgery
  •     Nasal  tumor
  •     Second  trimester pregnancy epistaxis.
