I caught covid twice in 90 days. This latest variant is worse. Severe nasal congestion, weakness, and nosebleeds, so much so have to have nose cauterized. Antibiotics, steroids, nothing helps. Has anyone else have this.

Hi Karel!
I have had a chronic nose problem with bleeding, etc. for over 40 years. (Long before Covid!) I saw doctors about it and all they did was cauterize it which helped for a while but then it would return in the form of severe nose bleeds. It was a little sore in my nostril and would act up when I was in traffic or parking garages and in cold weather. Putting Mentholatum in my nose would stop a nose bleed and give some relief. Finally a doctor prescribed Mupirocin ointment 2%. It works great! It's an antibiotic available by prescription ony. It takes the infection and nose bleeds and pain away with just a few uses. It doesn't cure it, but it has become less over the years. At the first sign of a little sore forming in my nostril, I apply it. Then, it doesn't get to the full stage of nosebleeds etc. I hope this helps.

I HAD TO HAVE MINE CAUTERIZED, TOTALLY PAINLESS. I JUST HAD IT DONE TODAY. OTHER THAN USING NORMAL SALINE NOSE SPRAY NOTHING ELSE THEY CAN DO. SO FAR ITS BEEN 12 HRS. HAD A LITTLE BLEED. DOC STATED IT TAKES 48 HRS FOR CAUTERIZATION TO WORK FULLY. I WILL KEEP POSTED.

IF THE NOSEBLEEDS ARE FOR MORE THAN 3 DAYS, GO TO EAR NOSE AND THROAT DOCTOR AND GET IT CAUTERIZED. NO PAIN, THEY JUST PUT SOME BURNING SUBSTANCE WITH A Q TIP. TAKES 10 MINUTES OR LESS.
