Treating nosebleeds

Question : What causes nosebleed ? I am a scuba diver. My nose bleeds each time after I finish a dive.

Answer : Nosebleeds, also known as epistaxis, usually occur in the front part of the nose. The normal causes of nosebleeds include trauma, falls, vigorous nose rubbing, drying of the nasal mucous membrane, air dryness and air travel, secondary to local infections such as rhinitis, sinusitis and systemic infections such as malaria and typhoid fever, arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure or even liver disease.

You should consult a doctor for a proper diagnosis and actual cause of your nosebleeds.

Eat a diet rich in vitamin K such as liver and green leafy vegetables. Vitamin K, a fat soluble vitamin, is necessary for blood clotting.

Avoid alcohol and aspirin intake as these have blood-thinning properties that will cause increased bleeding. Increase intake of water to keep the body tissue dehydrated. Apply lubricant in the nose at night, once or twice during the day until the bleeding stops. You may also supplement your diet with Vitamin C. Vitamin C has antiviral and anti-inflammatory potential that boosts the immune system and fight infections. It also helps to keep the body tissue healthy.
