Nosebleeds in Summer!
Bleeding from any part of the nasal mucosa nose.These bleedings are called primary and secondary bleeding. Emphasizing that the primary causes are the causes of the nose itself, Op. Dr. Dilek said, “Secondary causes occur due to any systemic disease.”
Stating that bleeding caused by the tram may be due to Op. Dr. Deniz Dilek said, “These are strong blowing, aspirin use and allergic causes. Bleeding may occur in cases of finger scratching, which we call digital trauma, especially in children. Secondary causes are the most common ones. Bleeding disorders, vitamin A deficiency, and using drugs such as aspirin can be counted.”
The dangers of bleeding
Making statements about the dangers of bleeding, Dilek said, “Some are innocent, that is, allergic bleeding. This is what we see especially in children. Generally, those caused by allergies do not pose a danger. However, since the nose itself, especially tumor-related conditions, can also occur, in this case, it is necessary to be on the alert and consult a specialist.
“We see it more often in the summer”
Stating that hot weather can increase bleeding, Dilek said, “Hot weather can increase bleeding. Because the amount of shrinkage in the vessels decreases, and when it decreases, relaxation occurs and bleeding may increase. Especially in people with high blood pressure and taking medication, the reason why we see these bleedings in the summer is more common when both the predisposition and the hot factor are added to it. There is no such thing as not possible in the winter season, we just see it more often in the summer.”
Explaining what can be done about the treatment of this condition, Dilek said, “There is treatment according to the reason. First of all, it is necessary to know the cause. If it is caused by allergies, it is necessary to keep away from allergens and, if necessary, to take medication. If medication is used, dose adjustment is required. Even if it is a low cause, it can also be caused by a nasal tumor, and such cases should be seen by a specialist.
“Clogging the nose is a wrong practice”
Indicating how to intervene when suddenly exposed to nosebleeds, Dilek said, “In case of bleeding, the person should hold the tip of the nose with their thumb and forefinger by pinching the tip of the nose, tilting their chin and head completely forward for about five minutes. If it does not stop, is repeated frequently and occurs in large amounts, it is absolutely necessary to apply to a health institution. It is a wrong practice to occlude the nose, as the amount of bleeding may increase as it may further traumatize the mucosa. We should not do this,” he said.
