It's getting colder and dryer outside, which means... it's nose bleed season!
If the nose bleed is too brisk for the nasal spray, soak a cotton ball with Afrin, then place in the front of the nose, and pinch onto it.
Don't let go too early or you risk ripping off the soft clot and starting all over again. Use one of these if you need help
Hold your head forward over a sink. Leaning your head back allows the blood to be swallowed, which won't hurt you, but makes some people nauseous.
Avoid rubbing or scratching your nose.
Keep fingers, tissues and Qtips out of your nose.
If that still doesn't help, come see us!
