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.

Step 4: WARNING

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
