Nose Bleeds (Epistaxis)
Nose bleeds is a fairly common condition though it can be scary when it happens. The nose has plenty of blood vessels within and sometimes when the vessel breaks, it can result in a lot of bleeding. Most nose bleeds are thankfully not due to nose tumor or cancer.
When a nose bleeding happens, it is important to apply first aid immediately. You should pinch the lowest part of the nose at the softest part and apply firm pressure for 10 minutes. During this time you should tilt your head forward and you can apply ice pack to your forehead or suck on some ice. Most nose bleeding will stop with these simple measures.
