What is the frequency of the nose bleeds.
How long does it bleed?
Cauterization is the usual option. It can be tried once again. There is an area in the nose called Littles area and is highly vascularised. The bleeding is usaully from there.
The ent surgeons call also do a speculum examination of the nose to see if there are any polyps which can cause bleeds. It needs to be checked.
The gp should be able to arrange an eppointment. Hope every thing clears.
