Nasal Cauterization Effects
Nose cautery: After nasal cautery, you really want to let the nose heal. Try to avoid blowing your nose for 2-3 days, longer if more bleeding stirs up after cautery. Keep the nose moist with saline, too. This facilitates the healing if the lining of the nose after treatment. You can also prevent drying of the nose by putting a little vaseline just inside the openings if the nose. Read more

After cauterization yesterday, how likely is it that my nose will bleed on-board a plane flight tomorrow?
Use saline gel: After cautery you are likely to have the equivalent of a scab on the inside of your nose where the heat was applied. Healing of a cautery site occurs best in a moist environment as moisture prevents premature separation of the scab (bleeding). Airplanes have low humidity (moisture) and can dry the nose out. Avoid Aspirin and use a saline gel product such as ayr. It is easy to use while traveling. Read more
My son had his nose cauterized 2 years ago. The past two days he has had about a dozen severe nose bleeds. Does cauterization stop working?
Did its job: Cauterization is not forever it is for today & maybe this week. The nasal membranes re-establish the tiny capillary network within days/weeks to add moisture to the air we breathe so our lungs don't get too dried out by dry air. Your kid has issues with irritants or allergies that should be addressed long term. For now, get in and stop the bleeding for today. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
One person said they now had holes in their nose from too many cauterizations when younger. Could this only happen because of bad ENT procedures?
Septal Perforations: They can be caused by cautery, cocaine, otc nasal sprays, nasal surgery or other more unusual diseases. They tend to crust and bleed if the septal care ledge or bone is exposed. This can be easily fixed but I don't recommend trying to patch the perforation... The failure rate is high and the scars / flaps from the surgery can block the airway and it's unnecessary to close the hole. Read more
