It is rare for a nosebleed to be a serious medical issue, but it should still be watched carefully and taken seriously. In the rare cases that a nosebleed is serious, it typically occurs because of artery damage deep within the nose. In most serious nosebleeds, there is a major underlying health problem such as hypertension.
People who live in low humidity hot climates are more likely to get nosebleeds. People who suffer from a deviated septum have uneven airflow within the nostrils, which can lead to a nosebleed. When a person suffers from allergies or common colds regularly, they are more likely to develop nosebleeds due to the inflammation within the nose. Some medical conditions like hypertension and kidney failure can lead to chronic nosebleeds. Certain medications can increase the risk of a nosebleed.
