Epistaxis (nosebleeds)

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - In this week's Neighborhood Healthwatch we discuss the symptoms of nosebleeds.

In Henrico, Dr. Denise Jackson is dealing with nosebleeds.

Symptoms include bleeding from the nose or from the back of the throat.

This time of year, we often see nosebleeds as a result of dryness associated with the cooler air.

Patients should always seek medical care if nosebleeds persist or are severe.
