Who is likely to suffer from nosebleeds?

Nosebleeds affect both males and females and may affect all age groups, but are common in the elderly and children. More than half of children aged 5 to 15 years may experience nosebleeds on regular intervals. Elderly patients suffering from hypertension are more likely to have nosebleeds.

Throat Conditions

Tonsillitis is an infectious condition with symptoms characterized by inflamed tonsils, fever, painful swallowing, sore throat, and a slight voice change. Other tonsillitis symptoms include a white or yellow coating on the tonsils, swollen lymph nodes, headache and bad breath. Nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain may occur in younger children. Throat infection (pharyngitis) often occurs along with tonsillitis.
