How to Stop a Bloody Nose the Right Way

Bloody noses (officially known as epistaxis) are uncomfortable and scary-looking, but most of the time, they're usually not dangerous. Kids get nosebleeds more often than adults, typically either from irritating the nasal membrane with digital trauma (picking their noses) or from other external trauma (like a soccer ball in the face). When adults get nosebleeds, it could be an indicator of a more severe medical problem. Be sure to tell your doctor if you have gotten bloody noses, especially without physical trauma.
