What is Epistaxis?

Epistaxis, commonly known as a nosebleed, is a condition characterized by bleeding from the nose. It can occur spontaneously or as a result of trauma, dry air, nasal infections, or underlying medical conditions. Epistaxis can range from minor, self-limiting bleeding to more severe and recurrent episodes. While nosebleeds are often benign and resolve on their own, persistent or severe nosebleeds may require medical intervention to control the bleeding and prevent complications.
