Common Causes of Nasal Bleeding

Several conditions can lead to nasal bleeding, with some of the most common being:

Respiratory Infections

Respiratory tract infections, such as the common cold, can inflame and irritate the nasal membranes, leading to bleeding.

Nasal Allergies

Allergic reactions affecting the nose can also cause inflammation and bleeding due to constant irritation and tissue trauma.

Nasal Trauma

Blows or injuries to the nose, whether accidental or due to manipulation (such as nose picking), are common causes of nasal bleeding.

Coagulation Disorders

Some diseases can affect the blood’s ability to clot properly, such as:

Severe Liver Disease

Liver diseases can interfere with the production of clotting factors, increasing the risk of bleeding.

Hereditary Bleeding Disorders

Conditions like hemophilia or von Willebrand disease predispose individuals to bleeding more easily.

Cardiovascular Diseases

Cardiovascular problems can also be an underlying cause of nasal bleeding:

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure can increase the risk of nasal bleeding due to the pressure exerted on the blood vessels.


Hardening of the arteries can compromise circulation and contribute to nasal bleeding.

Dermatological Conditions

Some skin diseases can also manifest with nasal bleeding:

Petechiae and Hematomas

Small red or purple spots on the skin may indicate disorders that also cause nasal bleeding.

Dilated Small Blood Vessels

Dilation of vessels in and around the nose can make them more prone to bleeding.
