A specialist has identified the most effective and least dangerous way to stop a nosebleed. The key is to blow then pinch.
When temperatures drop and the air gets drier, many begin to suffer from what seem like constant and never ending nosebleeds.
Those people need not suffer any longer. A specialist has identified the most effective and least dangerous way to stop a nosebleed.
The first thing to know about fixing the problem is to not fall prey to temptation – and, let’s face it, logic – and tip your head back or stuff your nose with tissue.
Tipping the head can just create bigger problems like vomiting and even ending up with blood in the lungs.
Filling your nasal passages with tissues or cotton balls can irritate the sensitive interior areas as well as causing a blockage. This remedy has been known to lead to more nosebleeds down the road.
The key is to blow then pinch. Blowing your nose is to expel any clots that may have already formed. Pinching the nose just below the bone for about 5 minutes will do wonders in stopping the flow without nasty side effects.
It may take a couple of tries, but shouldn’t require any more than that. If it does, you’re best advised to see a doctor.
