Health Tip of the Day

Treatment for a Nosebleed

The best way to deal with a nosebleed is to sit down and lean slightly forward. Don't lie down because keeping your head above your heart will make your nose bleed less, says the American Academy of Family Physicians. Leaning forward will allow the blood to drain out of your nose instead of down the back of your throat. Use your thumb and index finger to squeeze together the soft portion of your nose. Don't let go for at least 5 minutes. If it's still bleeding, hold it again for 10 minutes straight.
