Nose bleeds are inconvenient and can be alarming, both for the sufferer and those around them. Causes can range from trauma to the nose, picking the nose, changes in the mucous membrane caused by colds and in association with more serious ailments such as leukaemia.
Most people have had a nose bleed at some time in their lives.
- Recurring nose bleeds are suffered by about 4% of the total population
- 1 in 10 children experiencing frequent nosebleeds
Traditionally, treatment of nose bleeds has either been to clamp the wings of the nose or insert a wad of cotton wool into the nostrils. Nozohaem is a unique gel treatment, combining a mix of glycine and calcium, both well known to have a positive impact on blood functionality. It is safe, simple and quick to administer and stops the bleeding in moments. Once the bleeding has stopped, the gel can be left in the nostril to clear it away naturally or it may be gently blown out into a tissue.
- Blow your nose well to remove any blood
- Insert the tip of the Nozohaem tube into one nostril, about 1-1.5 cm, and start pressing the gel out of the tube. At the same time, hold the thumb and index finger on your other hand over the wing of your nose to fix the pipette in place
- Continue pressing the tube so that all the gel enters your nostril. If your nosebleed is not heavy, one tube is sufficient. If the nosebleed is heavy, one or two tubes may be needed
- Continue to apply the gel until the bleeding stops. Stop when the gel starts running down into your throat. Wipe off any gel that runs onto your upper lip
- The gel should be left in your nose for 30 minutes. Afterwards, you can blow it out carefully, if you so wish. If you do not blow out the gel, it will be transported backwards by the nasal cilia and you will then swallow it after a few hours
- If the bleeding does not stop after 30 minutes, you should consult a doctor
This should be in every first aid kit as an effective alternative to tissues and clamping your nose.
