Hello,

I am sorry to hear about this. Please read about the first aid for it in this resource (it seems that you have done these measures);

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/first-aid-nosebleeds/HQ00105

Since this has going on for so long; you would nasal packing. In this a small ribbon bandage is put in the nose; which puts pressure at the bleeding point and stops it. You would need to go to ER.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.
