Can Dehydration Cause Nosebleeds After Cauterization?

My son has frequent nosebleeds varying from minor to severe. He has had cauterization on both sides and they continue to happen. We do have wood heat and of course the usuall winter dry air. I know dry air is a common cause for nosebleeds. My question is, can dehydration cause nosebleeds? He is an athlete and works out before school and has practice after school. I don t believe he s drinking enough water.

Hi,
There are many reasons for node bleed. The causes vary from simple upper respiratory tract infection to severe hypertension. Since you say cauterisation was done, the concerned doctor would certainly have evaluated the cause. You should discuss with him regarding this. Dehydration n sports don't cause this. Since practises athletics post school which should be in the noon in scorching sun, the sun Stoke might have caused. Even nose picking can cause this. Use can use lubricating saline drops/sprays to prevent this. They soften the hardened mucous and help relieving the discomfort.
