The Best Way To Stop a Bleeding Nose

According to Dr. Lamm, when your nose starts to bleed, blow your nose gently to get the clout out. Then, lean forward. Avoid leaning backward as you will tend to swallow all the blood.
Pinch the soft part of your nose for 10 minutes then put an ice pack on it and on your cheeks to reduce blood flow. Don't take aspirin as it only aggravate the bleeding.
If you still have bleeding, the blood is perhaps coming from the back which means a larger artery can be bleeding, and is serious, or you might be having a problem with your clotting.
In either case, see your doctor!
