The Nose Knows: Yes, it "stops" working because the nose heals, which means the cautery has its job. But it can work again if the bleeding is from the same problem. A dozen "severe" nosebleeds does not sound like fun and can get messy and even lead to dizzy/fainting problems if they are too big. So, it's near time to go get that nose checked and see if something will be necessary to quell those bleeds. ...Read more

You may also consider using a humidifier to help reduce nasal congestion. Gently brushing with a soft toothbrush ...Read more

How can you stop nosebleeds with nose cauterization?

Sealing the vessel: Nosebleeds are caused by a bleeding blood vessel or several small vessels, usually on the middle wall of one nostril. Cauterization means using heat, electricity or a chemical to essentially burn the edges of the vessel and seal it closed so blood won't leak anymore. ...Read more

See your Dr.: Any positive benefit of taking a baby Aspirin daily would be outweighed by the bleeding that you have. Check with your doctor to make sure that there isn't something else that could be contributing to the nasal bleeding. Most people don't bleed on that low of a dose so have it checked. ...Read more

I : I am very concerned about your symptoms. I would like you to see a neurologist and have a complete evaluation of your symptoms. Your symptoms sound somwhat like a concussion, but the duration is very concerning and you need a full neurological evaluation. If you are having this severe of symptoms then you should not be participating in any type of sports until you are cleared. In addition, you should see your ENT doctor again to re-evaluate your persistent injury. But seeing the neurologist is most important at this time. If you have worsening headache, visual changes, vomiting, weakness or numbness then you will have to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Epistaxis: Sometimes epistaxis (nosebleed) is mechanical from picking the nose and creates an open sore that bleeds. Another reason is a cold or allergies can make the turbinates in the nose become easily damaged and can bleed over and over. If the bleeding is coming from one side, most likely a blood vessel that can be cauterized. See an ENT. ...Read more
