Do you tilt your head back or forward with a bloody nose?

Forward. Pinch the soft triangle of the nose for 5+ minutes with the head forward. This will apply pressure on the blood vessels which are most likely the culprits while leaning forward prevents blood from welling in the throat or swallowing blood causing nausea. Apply Afrin nasal spray first, if not contraindicated, which will help constrict blood vessels also.
Nose. Great question. Head straight, pinch bottom of the nose ice packs over the bridge for twenty minutes. For prevention humidifer at night and saline gel into the nose a few times a day. Avoid blood thinners like aspirin ibuprofen and fishoil.
