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