Top 8 Nose Bleed That Started Spontaneously Causes

  1. 1.Chronic Allergies

    Allergies are an overreaction by the immune system to something that does not bother most other people. Many people who have allergies are sensitive to pollen, but other things such as dust mites, animal dander, cockroaches, and mold can also cause a reaction.

    Allergies are a benign (but annoying!) condition, that can cause symptoms like a runny nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes. Treat by avoiding what you're allergic to, or with an over-the-counter medication such as loratidine (Claritin), or diphenhydramine (Benadryl).

    Rarity:
    Common
    Top Symptoms:
    fatigue, irritability, trouble sleeping, runny nose, cough with dry or watery sputum
    Symptoms that never occur with chronic allergies:
    fever, chills, muscle aches
    Urgency:
    Self-treatment
  2. 2.Hemophilia a

    Hemophilia A is an inherited (genetic) disorder which causes the blood to have a deficiency or absence of coagulation factor VIII, which is a protein that is needed to create blood clots. This can result in bleeding that starts on its own, or uncontrollable bleeding after trauma or surgery.

    You should visit your primary care physician who will refer you to a hemophilia treatment center. Treatment is with medication and avoidance of trauma that can cause uncontrollable bleeding.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    spontaneous shoulder pain, difficulty moving the shoulder, unexplained/excessive bleeding from cuts or wounds, pink/blood-tinged urine, rectal bleeding
    Symptoms that always occur with hemophilia a:
    unexplained/excessive bleeding from cuts or wounds
    Urgency:
    Primary care doctor
  3. 3.Hypertensive Crisis

    A hypertensive crisis occurs with when there is a severe increase in blood pressure. In some cases, this causes damage to the organs.

    A hypertensive crisis is an emergency requiring immediate attention. Call 911.

    Rarity:
    Uncommon
    Top Symptoms:
    headache, nausea or vomiting, chest pain, being severely ill, vision changes
    Symptoms that never occur with hypertensive crisis:
    rib pain that shoots to the jaw
    Urgency:
    Emergency medical service
  4. 4.Immune Thrombocytopenia

    Platelets are tiny cells in the blood that help form blood clots and seal minor cuts and wounds. Immune thrombocytopenia, also known as immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), is a condition where there are not enough platelets in the blood, causing easy bruising and tiny reddish purple dots on the skin from bleeding under the surface.

    You should visit your primary care physician to determine the severity of your ITP, and plan a course of treatment if needed. Treatment is focused on raising the platelet count to prevent excessive bleeding.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    being severely ill, rectal bleeding, red stool, unexplained/excessive bleeding from cuts or wounds, pink/blood-tinged urine
    Symptoms that always occur with immune thrombocytopenia:

  5. 5.Head and Neck Cancer

    There are five main types of head and neck cancer, which are all named according to the part of the body where they develop: laryngeal (voice box), nasal cavity and sinus, nasopharyngeal (air passage way behind the nose), oral (mouth), and salivary gland cancers. Most of these cancers are squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs), meaning they begin in the flat (squamous) cells that make up the thin surface layer of the structures in the head and neck.

    You should visit your primary care physician who will coordinate your care with a cancer specialist (oncologist) for further testing. It is impossible to definitively diagnosis head and neck cancers without lab testing and biopsy. Treatment is likely to include surgery and chemotherapy.

    Gaucher's disease is the result of a buildup of certain fatty substances in certain organs, particularly the spleen and liver. This causes these organs to become much larger than normal and can affect their function.

    You should visit your primary care physician, where extensive blood tests could come to the diagnosis. Treatment involves enzyme replacement therapy.

    Rarity:

    Top Symptoms:
