What causes nosebleeds?

Nosebleeds may be alarming, but typically they are not serious. Nosebleeds are commonly caused by trauma, colds, allergies, and even dry air. Bleeding occurs when the mucosa is eroded and vessels become exposed and then break.

There are 2 types of nosebleeds: anterior and posterior. The vast majority (90%) of nosebleeds are anterior and produce a constant ooze of venous bleeding that usually comes from a convergence of vessels in an area inside the nose known as Kiesselbach’s plexus. More serious, posterior nosebleeds are emergencies that present with pumping and profuse arterial bleeding that comes from further back in the nose. If you can pinch your nose and stop bleeding without difficulty, your nosebleed is likely to be anterior and can be treated with NasaClip.
