  • Sit up with your head titled slightly forward.

  • With your thumb and index finger, firmly squeeze the soft part of your nose jus above the nostrils but beneath the bridge, which is where nosebleeds usually start

  • Apply pressure for 5 minutes. (Granted, itís a long times, but it usually takes at lease 2 to 3 minutes for the bleeding to stop.) if bleeding continues, squeeze for another 5 to 10 minutes.
