Thank you for your query.
I am a bit confused as you mention that you took your son for cauterization
but the doctor packed it with gauze. Was cauterization done or was just nasal packing done?
Following cauterization there is usually no need of doing a nasal packing.
If only nasal packing has been done then the child will have some discomfort as there is pressure on the area and oozing of blodd may be present.
I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
Wishing your son an early recovery.
