Health Tip: Stopping Nosebleeds

(HealthDay News) -- Nosebleeds often occur from a leaky blood vessel in the nose, says Harvard Medical School.

Here's a description of a pinching technique to relieve a nosebleed:

  1. Nod your head forward.
  2. Place your thumb on one side of your nose and your forefinger on the other.
  3. Pinch your thumb and forefinger together. Hold.
  4. If the bleeding slows, you are pinching in the right place. If not, pinch lower or higher.
  5. Hold the pinch for at least five minutes.
