Action

  • Using the thumb and index finger pinch the soft part of the nose (between end of nose and the bridge of nose) and breathe through mouth
  • Release after for 10 minutes and hold again
  • Press cold cloth against nose
  • Once bleeding stops, place a cold cloth over face and nose and keep head higher than heart for a while longer
  • Get medical help if the bleeding lasts more than 20 minutes or if there is an injury
