How to Stop Nose Bleed | Nose Bleed Treatment

What is Nose Bleed:

Nosebleeds can be dramatic and frightening. Fortunately, most nosebleeds are not serious and usually can be managed at home, although sometimes medical intervention may be necessary. During a nosebleed, blood flows from one nostril, or sometimes both nostrils. It can be heavy or light and last from a few seconds to more than 10 minutes.

Nose Bleed Symptoms:

Nosebleed symptoms are easily recognizable: blood coming out of your nose, or from your nose down the back of your throat.

Nose Bleed Causes:

The following factors predispose people to nosebleeds:

* Infection

* Trauma, including self induced by nose picking, especially in children

* Allergic and non allergic rhinitis

* Hypertension (high blood pressure)

* Use of blood thinning medications

* Alcohol abuse

* Less common causes include tumors and inherited bleeding problems

* Very cold or very dry air

Nose Bleed Remedies:

* Calmly sit down in an upright position, not back in the chair. This will help to keep blood from going down the back of your throat. Breathe through your mouth.

* Put a drop or two of lemon juice in the nostril that is bleeding. This is an effective way to stop nose bleed.

* An ice pack or cold compress on the back of the neck is another remedy. Pressure on the back of the neck restricts flow of blood to the head.

* Press your finger between your lip and gum, pressing upward against the nose.

* Saline water serves as a good natural remedy for treating nose bleed. For this, put a pinch of salt in half a glass of water and spray it inside the nose.

* Dip a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and apply it on the bleeding nose. It helps the blood to congeal and will bring the bleeding to a stop.

* Apply an ice pack on the exterior of the nose. This is an easy and effective way to cure nose bleeding.

* Placing a wet towel on the head has been found to be beneficial in curing nose bleeding.

* When nosebleed occurs, you need to make sure that the surroundings are not dry. Humidify the air with a good air humidifier. This would prevent the nose from working exceedingly hard, thereby preventing bleeding.

* In a pint of water, add a tsp of golden seal. Put the solution in a pan and place it on flame. Once the first boil comes, turn off the flame and let the decoction settle down. When it gets cool, snuff some into the nostrils. Repeat this a few times a day.
