Stop Nosebleed In 5 Minutes Using These Tricks

Have you experienced that out of the blue, you felt your nose began to run. As you wonder if you're catching a cold, you wipe your nose and are shocked to see blood.

Although nosebleeds are usually harmless and easily controlled, it can be quite annoying especially if you’re at the workplace, in the car or in a meeting.

Nose bleeds occur when the inner lining of one’s nose is hurt or dry. The resulting damage to small blood vessels in the nose induce bleeding.

Almost all nose bleeds originate from blood vessels in the front part of the nasal septum, which is the inside middle tissue separating both nostrils. Nose bleeds occur more frequently in patients with nasal allergies, sinusitis, hypertension, or bleeding disorders. 

If you want to prevent this unpleasant occurrence or quickly to stop the bleeding, try these tricks that really works.

1. Grip

– Sit flat and tilt your head slightly forward (to avoid the blood going in throat).

2. Gently blow your nose to remove any blood clots.

– Press the soft part of the nose with the index finger and thumb, just below the cartilage, and hold for about 10 minutes.

3. Compression

– Make a solid roll of gauze or cotton pads.

– Place the roll in the mouth, between the gums and the upper lip, just below the root of the nose and hold for about 10 minutes.

– If you do not mind a foreign body in your mouth, take a coin or button and press over the upper lip (between the lips and nose) with your finger and hold for about 10 minutes.

4. Cold compress

– Lean Ice cubes or cooled compress on the side of the nostril that bleeds.

– Hold for a while, or as much as you can withstand, take a break and repeat the process.

– The cold compress constricts blood vessels and thus stops the bleeding.

– A nasal spray has a similar effect of narrowing blood vessels.

How To Prevent nosebleeds:

* Drink plenty of fluids. The water hydrates the body, and hence the mucosa.

* Do not exaggerate with the air conditioning because it dries out the mucous membranes of the nose.

* Avoid paracetamol pills because they dilute the blood and thus can increase the nosebleeds.

* Increase the intake of vitamin C, which strengthens the capillaries and protects the mucous membranes.

* Moisturize the mucous membranes by inhalation or rinse your nose with slightly salted water in the morning and at bedtime. Mucous membrane must be salty and moist.

TIP: Once you've stopped the initial nosebleed, don't lift heavy objects or do other activities that cause you to strain, and try not to blow your nose for 24 hours.

However, if you've tried the steps above twice and the bleeding continues after the second attempt, you'll need to see your doctor.
