My mother n law...

My mother n law is having a nose bleed. What is the best way to make it stop bleeding?

Doctor's Assistant: When did the bleeding begin? Has your mother used any medication for it?

It started about 15 min again. No medication has been taken for it

Doctor's Assistant: Has she seen a doctor about the bleeding?

Maybe several years ago.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in her medical history you think the doctor should know?

I don’t believe so.

She is 78. She said her nose has bled before when the weather is dry. Did this before in Ruidoso New Mexico.
She just said it’s beginning to slow down.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I believe it is better now. Thank you

I understand your concern.

She can apply cool compresses with an ice pack on the nose.

And pinch the nose.

She can try Liquid Paraffin drops in the nose.

If possible monitor her blood pressure.

Sit down leaning forward, breath by mouth & squeeze the soft portion of the nose for 5minutes.
Check for stoppage of bleeding after 5 min.

If the bleeding does not stop within 20 min or she keeps loosing clots, please go to the ER immediately for control of bleeding.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
