10 Possible Causes Of Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds are a very common problem as most of us will experience them at some point in our lives. Nosebleeds are not always indicated by a cascade of blood pouring out of your nostrils. If you've ever noticed the tissue come out bloody after wiping your nose, then you have experienced a nosebleed.

While teenagers and younger adults can experience nosebleeds, nosebleeds usually occur in children between 2 and 10 years old, or adults over 50.

There are two types of nosebleeds: anterior nosebleeds and posterior nosebleeds. Anterior nosebleeds are most common and occur when the septum that separates your two nostrils is damaged. This can be caused by facial trauma or something as simple as scratching your nose with your fingernails. Posterior nosebleeds are less common and occur in deep parts of the nose. They can lead to gushing blood and are more common in older people or those who have high blood pressure. There are a variety of different causes of nosebleeds, including:

Causes Of Nosebleeds #1: Dryness

The climate can have a significant influence on the health of your nose. If you live in a place with an arid climate, such as a desert or a tropical area, then you're more likely to develop a nosebleed.

Dryness is one of the most common causes of nosebleeds. The heat and lack of moisture can dry out the inside of the nose, making it more susceptible to cracking and bleeding. This is particularly true for those who move from somewhere more humid into a dry climate.
