1. Nosebleeds are minor, really. The main thing is to remember that it will end. You will not bleed to death. 2. When you realize that your nose is bleeding place your index finger over your nostrils. This will keep the blood from getting anything bloody. 3. Quickly, find some kind of absorbant paper product. Tissue or toilet paper or paper towel will work. 4. Crumple the paper into a tight ball and put it under your nose in a good position to catch dripping blood. 5. Sit down. Breathe deeply. 6. One spot on the paper ball will be filled with blood soon. Move the ball so another part of it is catching dripping blood. Repeat this until the ball is completely filled with blood. 7. If necessary, make another paper ball to catch blood. This isn't often needed. One ball is usally sufficient. 8. Stand up slowly now. Pick up the blood-soaked paper and carry it to a garbage can. 9. Go back to the place where you discovered the nosebleed. Check for blood stains. If there are any clean them up before a stain can get set in. 10. Sit down again. Try to calm down. In a little while you can blow your nose and clear out all the bloody mucus, but for now just sit and calm down.
