below the bone for ten or fifteen minutes, don't lean your head back, that could cause other problems.
^ see a doctor if it continues, how is your blood pressure, do you have it checked often?
This could be a sign of an infection and you may need antibiotics to help curve the "flow"...

Go right away.

I had a bloody nose like that once at work. They called a medical emergency until and took me via ambulance to the emergency room where they cauterized my nose with silver something. I asked the doctor there why I had to be taken by ambulance. He said a nosebleed that wont stop is often caused by a blood clot that found a weak spot before it reached the brain.

^ only 4 of the 2.4 million deaths in the U.S. in 1999 were from nose bleed.

Vitamin K should be part of your daily vitamin supplement. There is QuikClot nosebleed available in the U.S. that is a hemostatic OTC formula. SinusWars5 is a 100% natural homeopathic remedy that was formulated to treat damaged mucus membranes and prevent nose bleeds.

A doctor may choose to cauterize the ruptured vessels using a local anesthesia, such as lidocaine. There are two types of cautery which are commonly used, chemical cautery using silver nitrate and electrocautery.

Chemical cauterisation is most commonly conducted using local application of silver nitrate compound to any visible bleeding vessel. This is a painful procedure and the nasal mucosa should be anaesthetised first, preferably with the addition of topical adrenaline to further reduce bleeding.

A hair dryer or heat gun on high heat forcing heated air to circulate through the nasal cavity exiting the mouth for 20 to 30 second intervals will help collagulate the blood. This is very uncomfortable and may cause burning of the soft skin tissue around the nose and mouth. Use a thick coat of petrolium jelly to protect the skin. Petrolium jelly may also be liberally appied inside the sinus cavity to aid in sealing the ruptured vessels and inhibit bleeding. It is important though to pinch the nose for a minute or two to slow blood loss before reapply heat.

^passiveson, the doctor was implying that the nosebleed prevented a stroke in my case.
