You are at home, at the office, or in the street with friends and your nose suddenly starts to bleed. Don’t be afraid.Sudden and profuse nosebleed is common. In many cases, the reason may be unclear, but nosebleeds can be treated at home. This phenomenon occurs in people with high blood pressure (hypertension). A person who takes aspirin, anticoagulant (blood-thinning) medications and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can also bleed from the nose. Bleeding can be due to trauma to the nose from an injury, too. Winter bleeding from the nose is caused by the drying of the lining of the nose as a result of dry air from indoor heating or outdoor cold air.
How to stop nosebleed
The most important thing now is to sit down regardless where you are (at home, in the street, in the market) Tilt your head slightly forward. Don’t take your chin down to your chest. Maybe this sounds strange to you, but this is recommended because it allows the blood to flow out. Otherwise, the blood flows through the throat and into the stomach and can cause nausea and vomiting. After that pinch your nose for 5-10 minutes. If it is possible, put something cold on your nose. This will stop the bleeding. Visit the emergency care if your bleeding continues after that.
