Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

From my nose and mouth, blood is coming.

Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Causes for bleeding from nose are:

  1. Infections like sinusitis or rhinitis may cause epistaxis.
  2. Nasal dryness or nasal pricking may cause bleeding.
  3. Other possible causes are hypertension, thrombocytopenia, vigorous sneezing or drugs like Aspirin may induce bleeding.

Use normal saline nasal spray every second hourly, avoid sneezing vigorously. If symptoms are not improved, please consult your doctor. He will examine and treat you accordingly.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
