Nosebleeds are a very common complaint. Typical causes include nasal manipulation, blowing the nose forcefully, chronic nasal inflammation, blood thinners and trauma among others. We perform a careful history and physical examination to detect the site of bleeding. Typically conservative therapies are enough to control the bleeds but occasionally requires nasal packing, chemical cautery or electrocautery.
Talk to your physician to see if a referral to Indigo ENT is right for you. We would be happy to talk about your concerns. It should be noted however, that if your bleed does not stop, or you experience symptoms of lightheadedness or dizziness, you should go directly to your nearest emergency location.
