Brief Answer: An endoscopic examination can help more Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. You are having bleeding after trauma to nose and this is common problem. The reason in your case I think can be loose fractures fragment of bone which has not yet healed or as laceration in nose which is taking time to heal. In case it is severe, an endoscopic examination by ENT will put more light on it. Feel free to ask another query. Regards

Brief Answer: Sialoendoscopy is another option Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. You are on lot of medicines, so please get a coagulation profile done in consultation with your ENT. This is regarding your bleeding episodes. Usually the injured areas heal in some time. Regarding salivary gland stones, the excision of the gland is an option but another option is sialoendoscopy and removal of stone if possible. So, please consult an ENT who is doing salivary gland endoscopy and this option can be availed in selective cases. But the facility is usually available in select hospitals. Bothe the above stated options should be availed after getting the infection under control. Please drink plenty of water and avoid long periods of dehydration. Feel free to ask another query.
