A device for treatment of nose bleed, the invention in a preferred embodiment takes the form of a bifurcated clip having opposed legs connected by a bight portion to gently urge the distal ends of the legs toward each other. The distal end of each leg is provided with an absorbent pad substantially saturated with a vasoconstrictive agent, the ends of the clip and thus the medicated pads disposed on the clip ends being slipped into the nose in the event of nose bleed. The pads contact those portions of the nasal mucosa lying on the septum immediately inside of the nostrils, common nose bleed typically occurring from these portions of the nasal mucosa. A stop element disposed on at least one of the legs prevents insertion of the clip ends beyond a safe distance into the nasal cavity. The action of the vasoconstrictive agent on the mucosa as well as the gentle pressure exerted by the clip itself acts to control bleeding. The pressure exerted by the clip can further be augmented by finger pressure on external portions of the clip or on the external surfaces of the tip of the nose.
