Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
The nasal bleed could be due to the raised blood pressure causing rupture of the weakened part of the blood vessel in the nose (micro aneurysm). The dizziness can also be a part of raised blood pressure. If the dizziness continues please do contact a good physician. Also drink plenty of water to rehydrate the nasal mucosa. Continue using nasal cream.
Take care

Regards

My daughter is a healthy 23 year old who has had frequent nose bleeds lasting approximately 30 minutes each. She went to ENT and had nose cauterized. Following cauterization she began feeling sweaty, clammy and overall not well. When she stood to leave, she fainted. She came to when hit the floor, got up and fainted again. Blood pressure was 128/78 before cauterization and dropped to 90/58 with fainting spell. Is this normal? She has never fainted before.
