Pressure initially: Pinch the soft part of your nostrils together for at least 15 min. If you have a decongestant nasal spray, such as oxymetazoline, use 2 sprays in each nostril prior to holding pressure. This will help constrict the blood vessels and help stop the bleeding. If it is still bleeding after 15 min, then spray your nose again and hold pressure for another 15 min. If this doesn't work, see a doctor.
