Nosebleeds are common injuries and can be easily treated, according to Canada's St. John Ambulance.

Here's how to handle a bloody nose:

  • Sit down with your head leaning slightly forward.
  • Pinch the soft part of your nose for about 10 minutes.
  • Loosen the clothing around your neck and breathe through your mouth.
  • Don't sniff or blow your nose for a couple of hours.

If a head injury caused your nosebleed, get medical help immediately.
