Hello doctor,

I just had my nose cauterized for the second time a week back and have a flight booked in two days. I am worried that it is too soon to fly as flying triggered my nose bleeds. I can change my flight to stay longer so it can heal further. Not sure. Just do not want it to start bleeding again and start the whole process over again. I am guessing that you can only be cauterized so many times.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Nose bleed is a very common problem. It is treated with cautery which may need repeating a few times. Since you had it only a few days ago, it might be better to avoid flying for 3 to 4 weeks, if possible. Carry on using the ointment for one month and then have yourself reviewed by your doctor. This is the standard practice everywhere.


Probable diagnosis:

Nose bleed.

Treatment plan:

Ointment in the nose for one month.

Preventive measures:

Avoid nose blowing and picking. Keep blood pressure under control. Avoid blood thinners.
