How To Stop A Nosebleed

How To Stop A Nosebleed

Stop a Nosebleed. Don't suffer unnecessarily with this common complaint. Our expert advice shows the correct way to stop the discomfort of a nose bleed.

Step 1: Pinch your nose firmly

Sit down and pinch your nose firmly just below the bridge with your thumb and index finger.

Step 2: Lean your head forward

Lean your head forward and breathe through your mouth, maintaining the pressure for ten minutes.

Step 3: Continue to apply pressure

If the bleeding has not stopped, apply pressure for another 10 minutes.


Whatever you do don't tip your head back since this will result in you swallowing blood. Or stick a key on the back of your neckā€¦ that's just an old wives' tale!

Step 5: Seek medical advice

Bleeding should stop in 30 mins, but avoid bending down or blowing your nose for the next 12h. If bleeding does not stop, seek medical advice
