Essential First Aid Tips for Stopping Nose Bleeds

Now that you know the common causes of nosebleeds, it’s time to get practical. Here are some basic first-aid tips for stopping a nosebleed.

Firstly, tilt your head forward while pinching your nostrils together. You don’t want to lean your head back as you might swallow blood, which can make you feel nauseous. 

Secondly, applying ice packs or something cold like a cloth or water bottle against your forehead can also help stop the bleeding in some cases. The cold temperature helps to constrict the blood vessels in your nose and reduce bleeding.

Thirdly, avoid blowing or picking your nose for at least a few hours after the bleeding has stopped. Doing so can cause further irritation and lead to another nosebleed.

Remember to seek immediate medical attention if you experience frequent nosebleeds or have other underlying health conditions that can make them worse.
