(HealthDayNews) -- 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.
