Lean the casualty over a basin, pinch the lower pan of the nose for 10 minutes, then release slowly. If blood starts to flow again, pinch the nose for another 5 minutes. If bleeding persists, take the person to a doctor. Do not allow the person to lie down. The nose should not be forcibly blown for 2-3 days after a nosebleed. If the remedies below produce no improvement, try one of the remedies listed under Bleeding.
