    00:01 Clinical pearl here is, inflammation of the nose, this is referred to as “rhinitis,” and we're looking at the mucous membrane of the nose, caused by irritants or you might have allergies, so, allergens would contribute to rhinitis.

    00:22 Common symptoms associated with rhinitis are: Eye and nose itching, sneezing, stuffiness, you can have a runny nose, have a post nasal drip.

    00:36 Management is typically by antihistamines, decongestants, reduce inflammation through, corticosteroid use, glucotriene, receptor antagonists and chromium sodium, would be another therapeutic.

    00:56 Epistaxis, is just kind of a clinical fancy word for nosebleed, these are very common in individuals.

    01:04 Most common cause is dry air, other causes can include pregnancy, nose picking, colds can make you more sensitive, more prone to acquiring some nosebleeds, trauma, blood thinners if you're taking them, cocaine and irritants in general can lead to epistaxis.

    01:30 Management in this case of a nosebleed is, to lean the head forward, breathe through the mouth, pinch the nose with thumb and index finger and then some ice packs can help manage the nosebleed and reduce it.
