We come across many persons that suffer from nosebleed in one or both the nostrils. Vomiting is often associated with Epistaxis that causes spitting too. Persons suffering from this disease look confused and dizzy. They may fall victim to fainting too. Epistaxis is usually caused due to allergic rhinitis and harsh blowing of nose.
Patients affected with Epistaxis may be required to undergo sneezing. Sitting up straight and leaning forward is also useful. They are advised not to tilt the head backwards as it is dangerous. Sealing the blood vessels with silver nitrate or with local topical anesthetic is also good.
