Hello,my name is dr.Dorina Gurabardhi.I understand your concern.
The most common causes of nosebleeds are drying of the nasal membranes.
Some advices that I can give to you are:     
-Apply an ice pack to your nose and cheeks. Cold will constrict the blood vessels and help stop the bleeding.
-Keep pinching for a full 10 minutes.
- Put a thin layer of a saline or water based nasal gel, such as NasoGel, or an antiseptic nasal cream inside your nose
Hope my answer was helpful.If you have any other question Ill be glad to help.
Regards,     
dr.Dorina Gurabardhi
