Thank you for your query.
Do not panic. Stop the active bleeding by putting ice pack on the bridge of the nose.
After the bleeding has stopped apply neosporin eye ointment in the nostril where it is bleeding.
Check your blood pressure and get an ENT checkup.
Get a Xray of the sinuses done.take vapour inhalation thrice daily after the bleeding has stopped.
Hope this answers your query.
If you have any other queries kindly direct them to me.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
