    Nose bleed: how to clean blood clot, dried blood?

    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering if any got any tips on how to safely remove blood clot from a nostril after several days of on and off bleeding. The family doctor told me not to sneeze, not to blow my nose, moisturize it with bacitracin with a q-tip.

    So, it's been 72 hours. I get bloody dark brown discharges from a nostril, I can see that the blood clot is there and I assume that it's causing to make bloody discharges. The dilemma is how to remove the clot safely without causing a new bleeding and clean up the dry blood. Can anyone recommend any medicine or tips how to do it myself or I need to go back to family doctor or see ENT specialist for that?

    I hope to hear suggestions ASAP.
