does saline solution stop a nosebleed?

Adam D
Try it, tell us how that turns out...

Dr.Amrata Srivastava, BDS
When there is epistaxis,hold the nostrils with your fingers or a handkerchief
and pinch the lower, soft part of the nose between the thumb and forefinger.The grip should be firm and the pressure on the nose steady. Hold it for exactly 10 minutes. Holding the nose presses directly on the bleeding vein. This stops the bleeding and the blood will then coagulate or thicken into a scab.You can then apply Vaseline on the scab to soften it.Nasal sprays like oxymetazoline are also helpful,Saline solution does not help a lot.

If there is severe bleeding then cautery may be needed from a doctor.
Hope it helps.Take care and regards.

Dunno about stopping it, but it would definitely moisturize and possibly reduce swelling and rhinitis (or whatever that inflamation is called).

Neti pots are also great for this. Regularly used they make a huge difference.

Yes it can .... Spray a cold saline solution into the nose.... it is not my favorite method .... but here are some folk remedies ... for simple nose bleeds ....

Folk Remedies
Alum Herbalists suggest using wild alum root powder. This will stop the bleeding immediately. Wild alum root is a powerful astringent.

Apple cider vinegar is useful in getting a nosebleed to stop. Apple cider vinegar safeguards the body from loss of blood. Soak a small cotton ball in the vinegar and pack it lightly into the nostril. The vinegar will help the blood to congeal.

Pour some vinegar on a cloth and wash the neck, nose and temples with it.
Mix 2 teaspoonsful in half a glass of warm water and drink it. A variation of this is to take a teaspoonful (two for adults) in a glass of water three times a day, with or without meals. This latter remedy is especially good for both children and adults who get frequent nosebleeds where no injury is present.
Cayenne Put 1/8-1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of warm (hot preferred) water and drink it. This works because the cayenne travels through the entire circulatory system and regulates the pressure thereby taking pressure off the hemorrhaging area and aiding quick coagulation. Cayenne pepper is noted for its ability to stop both internal and external bleeding very quickly. Although it may sting, you can also put some cayenne inside the nose.

Goldenseal Another herbal remedy is to make a tea from goldenseal using one teaspoon to a pint of boiling water. Steep a few minutes, let settle, and, when cold, snuff some into your nostrils. Do this several times during the day to prevent recurrence.

Lemon water Mix the juice of three lemons into two cups of cold water and sponge on the sunburn. The lemon will cool the burn, act as a disinfectant, and will promote healing of the skin.

Saline solution Spray a cold saline solution into the nose.
