Nose bleeding severe?

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.

How can I treat my nose bleeding?

How can I treat my nose bleeding?

Depends: The treatment depends on the cause for the nosebleeds. Most are from the nasal septum which gets dried up in hot and dry weather. In such case nasal saline spray or gel 2-4 x daily on the septum may help. If the problem persists, your doc can cauterize the bleeding points. If you have a blood disorder (coagulation disorder), then the solution would be more complex. Avoid aspirin for now.

This will help keep the scab from drying and rubbing off!
