How to Stop Nose bleeding? First Aid & Emergency Treatment for Kids & Adults

Nose bleeds or bleeding can be caused by several things, such as a blow on the nose, irritation of mucous membranes in the nose for trying to eject something over and over from the nasal cavity, or because of infection.

Nosebleeds either happen suddenly or are the aftereffect or some trauma, for example, a hit to the face.

Extreme cold and/or dry air
Disease like hemophilia or von Willebrand
Tumors in the nasal cavity
Chronic alcohol consumption

Liver disease, kidney disease,
Nose picking, certain medications (e.g. nasal sprays), and being hit in the nose.

How to Stop Nose Bleeding?

The accompanying thoughts toward self-care measures are suggested:

1.  Ask the victim to sit with the body leaning forward. Keep your mouth to keep it open so that blood does not close the airway.

2.  Pinch the nose for 15 minutes. Press down on the edges nose bone, release slowly.

3.  Do not let the victim snot. If bleeding continues, pinch his nose again for 5 minutes and make sure the victim does not swallow the blood.

4.  Take a wet cloth or ice wrapped in a cloth. Place on the nose and face of the victim to narrow the blood vessels.

5. If the bleeding continues and no indication of fracture, immediately take it to the emergency care unit.

Danger signals in a severe nosebleed

1.  Heavy bleeding
2.  Shortness of breath, palpitation and turning pale
3.  Swallowing large amounts of blood, which will cause vomit and nauseous or could lead blood loss


Avoid blowing nose for the next 10-12 hours after the bleeding has stopped. It will help the dried blood to remain in place.
