Several treatments available for nosebleeds

Cold and flu season

Dear Doctors: I am a 76-year-old woman not prone to nosebleeds. However, I recently started having heavy ones. Thrombin spray helped, but only for a week. A CT scan was normal. What can be done? A friend with nosebleeds had his nose cauterized. Might that be helpful for me?
