One Who Has a Nosebleed on Shabbat

One Who Has a Nosebleed on Shabbat
Day: Tuesday
Date: July 21, 2015
Parshat: Devarim
Yalkut Yosef: 328

It is permissible on Shabbat for a person with a nosebleed to use a piece of fabric to soak up the blood and try to stop bleeding that way. There is no issue of dying the cloth since the cloth is most likely going to be thrown out anyhow. It is worth mentioning that it is healthier to wash one's nose with cold water and use tissues instead of fabric.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at sephardichalacha.org
