Nose Bleed / Epistaxis

Nose bleeds happen when the blood vessels in the upper part of the nose break and bleed. This is usually caused by injury, colds, or allergies. It is not a serious problem, and can be treated by holding the nose closed with the fingers for 10 minutes. Occasionally, however, it might be a sign of severe calcium deficiency or drug abuse.
