DO NOT tip your head back. Get some tissues and cover your nose so blood doesn't get anywhere, and pinch just underneath where the bony part of your nose ends. After a while the blood will be cut off and you will stop bleeding. Hope this helps!
If pinching the nose does not work, place ice above the nose, in between the eyes - this slows the flow of blood.
Medics told my uncle who was having a lot of nosebleeds to sit with his head between his knees or as far down as he could get it away from his heart. They also had him hold a cold wet washcloth over his nose.
Bleeding from the nose may be the result of a blow to the nose, or because the nose has been blown too hard, causing the blood vessels to break, or the result of drying and cracking of the nose in hot, dry weather, or it may occur (especially in children) for no apparent reason at all. In elderly people, a nosebleed may be a side effect of high blood pressure.
Sit the victim down with the head leaning forward so that the blood does not flow into the throat. Loosen any clothing around the neck. The victim should then pinch the lower soft part of the nose between the finger and thumb for about 10 minutes, and then release the pressure slowly. This can be repeated if the bleeding continues. When the bleeding stops, the victim should be careful not to blow the nose, as this will dislodge the clot and start the bleeding again. If the bleeding does not stop or if you suspect a broken nose or other injury, the nose should be held while medical help is obtained.
When my daughter was in primary school, had nosebleed and she was advised to lie down straight without a pillow for some time and keep a wet cotton on her nose. She had it like this 3 times, and each time the above method was done. Later she never had nosebleed.
Apply direct pressure and ice if needed. Lean forward just slightly and sit still until the bleeding stops.
