Pressure on Location: The bleeding is typically from capillaries in an area called kiesselbach’s area, just past the body near the nares. Look it up on google images.

Fingers first!: The best way to stop most nosebleeds is to sit up or stand, lean slightly forward, and then pinch the fleshy part of your nose with your fingers on both sides for ten minutes. If that does not work, u can also soak a cotton ball with afrin (oxymetazoline) and place it in your nostril. Be careful not to put in so far that you can get it out! if you have a history of hypertension, check your BP if your nose bleeds! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Pressure : Bow your head and pinch the soft part of your nostrils for at least 10 minutes.
