Treatment of nosebleed

Most nosebleeds are not a major problem and respond well to first aid management. First aid measures include:

  • Sit up and lean forwards so that blood does not flow back into the throat.
  • Pinch the nose firmly and hold it for some time to stop the bleeding.
  • Apply an ice pack to nose and cheeks to inhibit bleeding.
  • Do not blow your nose for a few hours after bleeding stops.

If the bleeding still persists, then the healthcare professional may use a nasal swab to arrest bleeding or may apply a topical blood clotting medicine. Nasal packing may be done if all prior treatment methods fail to the bleed.
