Should I allow my nose to dry and heal completely after cauterization? Why am I noticing blood while blowing my nose?

I had my nose cauterized 3 days ago. Should I be letting it dry out and heal? I have been using vaseline and secaris. It still bleeds a small amount at times when I need to blow gently or insert the ointment. Thanks
