Nosebleeds can be scary. Luckily, most nosebleeds are not serious and can be handled fairly easily. Most often, trauma to the nose, can trigger a nosebleed. Less commonly, an underlying health problem, such as an inability of the blood to clot, may contribute to the bleeding. If you get a nosebleed, stay calm, sit up straight, and lean your head forward, pinching your nostrils together for 10 minutes.
