    I assume he’s talking about nosebleeds. I get those somewhat often. Shoving something up your nose generally works, but sometimes you can get a nosebleed so bad the tissue is completely soaked in blood and useless after just a minute or two. In those cases, the best advice I can give is to wash it. Go to a sink and simply wash the blood, the bridge of your nose, cup some water in your hand and rest your nose in it without inhaling through it, and let the blood flow out with the water. If it gets impossible to contain just let it bleed away into a flow of cold water. Worked for me every time, and it has happened quite a few times to me.
