Noses can bleed for various reasons. They can be hit in the nose. It could be really dry. You could be hit in the head and your nose
could bleed. If you suspect any kind of head trauma you
need to call a doctor right away. If the bleeding is thin or yellow colored
you need to call someone right away. Call 911 and be seen right away. It could be head trauma. Something bigger and worse could be going
on. If you don’t suspect head trauma and it’s
a run of the mill nosebleed you want to pinch your nose. You’re going to pinch with your thumb and
your forefinger the soft part of your nose right here. You’re going want to lean forward. I know the old wives tale is to lean back. If you’re leaning back any blood will drain
down your throat and can gag you and make you feel uncomfortable. You’ll cough. It can irritate your nose even more. Lean forward and pinch. Pinch for a good ten minutes, and then let
go and see what happens. If it’s still bleeding go ahead and do the
same thing. Pinch your nose and lean forward. Pinch and hold. You may want to look at a clock, because ten
minutes seems like a very long time. Just wait it out. Pinch it and lean forward. If after two two times of ten minutes it’s
still going, if your nose is bleeding for more than thirty minutes, you really need
to see somebody about that because something’s going on. If you suspect that your nose has been broken,
if it’s misshapen, if it looks different than it did before, you’re going to want to get
it checked out to see if it is broken. Then the doctor can take care of that. Afterwards you can put ice to your nose and
to your cheeks to help with the swelling and to help with the pain. You could take over the counter medicines
to help. Stay away from aspirin, because that’s a blood
thinner and that can make the bleeding worse. If you start to notice other things going
on, confusion, dizziness, slurred speech, people just not acting like themselves especially
after a head trauma, after being hit in the head, then call your doctor. They are happy to help you. There is no question that’s too little or
too small. They are there to help because that’s what
they do.

Sucks so much when you have 4 blood noses on one plane trip, especially when you have to wait for the lavatory because someone is in there, it’s not a nice feeling wearing a white top with blood all down the front either and not having a spare top and walking out of the plane and through customs all the way home until I can change my top ugh worst plane ride ever!!
