Home remedies for NEURITIS


1. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids help prevent capillary fragility. Take 500 to 1,000
milligrams of each four times daily for two days after a nosebleed. Then take 500
milligrams of each twice a day for at least one month.

2. Vitamin K helps the blood to clot more efficiently. If you suffer from recurring
nosebleeds, take 25 micrograms once or twice daily for one month.

3. Another way to stop a nosebleed is to wet a bit of cotton or plain sterile gauze with white
vinegar and place it in your nose. Leave it in place for at least ten minutes. The acid of
the vinegar will gently cauterize the inside of the nose and stop the bleeding.
Prevention of Nose Bleeding

1. If you develop a nosebleed, do the following:

2. Calmly sit down in an upright position, not back in the chair. This will help to keep blood
from going down the back of your throat. Breathe through your mouth.

3. Tilt your head forward (not backward).

4. Place your thumb and forefinger on either side of the bridge of your nose and pinch the
soft part of your nose firmly for ten minutes without releasing. Apply pressure firmly
enough to slow bleeding, but not so strongly as to cause discomfort. Pressure decreases
the blood flow through the affected area, slowing bleeding. You can also place a cold
compress on the bridge of your nose. This has not been proven to be effective but seems
to help constrict the local blood vessels.

5. After ten minutes, release the nostrils slowly and check to see if the bleeding has stopped.
Avoid touching or blowing your nose. If the bleeding has not stopped, apply pressure for
another ten-minute period.

6. If your nose is still bleeding steadily after twenty minutes of pressure, call your health-
care provider.
