Nosebleed: Types, Causes & Symptoms

Nosebleed is named Epistaxis medically. A nosebleed is nothing but a loss of blood from the tissue inside of your nose. It can occur in one or both nostrils. Usually, it only affects one nostril.
Your nose has many small blood crafts. These crafts help warm and wet the air you breathe. But they lie close to the internal surface of your nose. When air moves through your nose, it can dry and rub your blood vessels. This makes them very easy to damage or break, causing a nosebleed.
