The tiny blood vessels or arterioles of the nose are very delicate and break easily, causing nosebleeds. While nosebleeds can occur at any age, children aged 2-10 and adults aged 50-80 are most likely to suffer from frequent nosebleeds. If nosebleeds are a common problem for you, Dr. Leeman will carefully examine your nose to determine the cause and recommend treatment.

Common causes for frequent nosebleeds include:

  • Allergies
  • Sinus/nasal infections
  • Dryness
  • Hereditary clotting disorders
  • Medications including anticoagulants and anti-inflammatories
  • Head injuries
  • Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia, a disorder involving a blood vessel growth similar to a birthmark in the back of the nose
  • Benign or malignant tumors

Most nosebleeds can be managed with proper care at home, but if the problem persists, further medical treatment may be required. Always contact our physicians if bleeding persists after 30 minutes or if nosebleed occurs after an injury to the head.
