Nose bleeding is a very common injury, especially among children involved in activities and games; particularly in winter months. The foremost thing to remember when your nose bleeds is, not to panic. Staying calm and treating is advisable. Generally nose bleeds are caused by damage to the mucus membrane in the nostrils. There are just two steps to treat a nose bleed.

First, lean forward to let the blood drip out. If you lean back keeping the blood from dripping this can irritate the stomach and cause vomiting. Secondly, pinch the sides of the nose to stop the bleeding. Make sure your fingers are on the hard part of the nose, don’t completely close the nostrils. Does this for at least for 5 minutes, only then the bleeding will stop. If necessary put the pressure on the nose for another 10 minutes. If nothing works out, only then go to a doctor.
