We’ve been told this a good number of times but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Tilting your head backwards will only make you swallow the blood which is definitely not recommended. So next time, should you find yourself nose bleeding, pinch the soft part of your nose for about ten to fifteen minutes. Make sure you are seated upright while you are at it and you could also just place an ice-pack at the back of your neck to constrict the blood vessel that is supplying blood to the nose.
