My last caughterization was in November.I am still heavily bleeding . To me, one persons bad is my good. My clotting factors and haemoglobin is fine, much like the rest of my blood work.

hi, one of the most common causesof bleeding from nose is continuous finger nail if u arehaving this habit then stop it.The other causes can be like nasopharyngeal angiofibroma or any mass in nose and nasopharynx. for that to rule out u have to do a diagnostic nasal endoscopy.
