Hi thanks for your question.
Sneezing is due to irritation of the nasal mucosa by cautery. Little amount of blood is expected as told by your physician. The dark blood could be because of 2 reasons, one mixing of blood with ointment which is used after cauterization. Second the dark blood post cautery is expected as cautery burns the tissue. You can continue with tab lortidine, additionally you can use xylometazoline nasal drops which will reduce the irritation and stop sneezing. Re consultation with treating physician is advisable
Hope this answers your question

Thanks for contacting HCM
As you have cauterized your nose yesterday . This is the minor surgery in which bleeding so much less. therefor preventing this minute bleeding requires cold fomentation around the nose 4-5 times, avoid pain killers as much as possible and use botroclot nasal drops three times a day.
