I had quadruple bypass surgery on 6/20/14. I m currently taking 81 mg of aspirin daily and 75 mg of plavix daily. I had one episode of nose bleed yesterday 8/3/14 and 2 episode today 8/4/14. Could the blood thinners be the cause of the nose bleed? My diastolic pressure tends to run high between 90 & 110.

My doctor prescribed Foban ointment for the inside of my nose in order to heal the skin from a bleeding nose. This was issued after the fact that the day before I had had my nose cauterized and it failed to work. After applying the foban ointment it has caused my nose to run and I may have sniffed and swallowed some of the ointment in the process. What will happen? Is this harmful? I have attempted to stop sniffing in order for the ointment to work.
