Pinching the upper, bony part of the nose or the upper lip does nothing. There are no blood vessels there that lead to a nose bleed. If that does not work then get a bottle of afrin
) and spray both sides of the nose with 2 big sprays--this is a vasoconstrictor that shrinks the blood vessels temporarily (never use afrin more that 3 days in a row--read the instructions). You may need to blow your nose before the afrin is sprayed to clear out excess blood and clot that will block it from getting where it is needed. After the afrin, pinch the nose
again for 10-15 minutes. You can repeat this again. If it is still bleeding, you may need medical attention. Once it stops, do not blow your nose. Frequent nose bleds are common, especially in the winter, but there are a number of problms that cause nose bleeds
that should be evaluated. So if you keep getting the bleeds, see a physician.
