Dear Lybrate User,
*Place crushed iced into a plastic zipper-type bag and cover with a towel. (A bag of frozen vegetables works fine, too.) Place the compress on the bridge of the nose and hold until well after the bleeding stops.
*Take a cloth or cotton ball and wet it with white vinegar. Plug it in the nostril that's bleeding. Vinegar helps seal up the blood vessel wall.
*Drink 1/4 cup of amla juice with water once daily. You can also apply fresh amla paste on the center of the head or skull to stop nose bleeding.
*Keeping the head in an elevated position reduces also nasal bleeding.
