Nose bleeds & Naseptin - question ?

Posted , 10 users are following.

Hi just joined. I'm wondering if anyone has had Naseptin prescribed by their Doctor for a nose bleed and what happened ? It's something to do with staphylococci which cause scabs or crusts to form inside the nose and if scratched, as they shrink a bit, start to bleed. I've been using Naseptin for about 4 to 6 weeks now without any success and wondered if there's anyone who is or has been in the same boat what their experiences were too ?

The reason I ask is because I tried an experiment last week using good old fashioned "Germolene" instead, the pink antiseptic ointment which I've used for just about everything else possible down the years, and so far it seems to be working !

Looking forward to any thoughts or replies....

Thanks :-)

    Thank you so much for posting on here. I have been suffering with the same problem for months. Naseptin

    not helped, tried various sprays and still not worked. After reading your post bought a tube of Germolene and the condition has cleared within 2 days. Thank you

    My doctor prescribed Naseptin after I had suffered several heavy nosebleeds, in May 2012. Since then I have used it on 4 or 5 occasions as soon as a 'show' of blood appeared; these did not develop into a proper bleed. I don't know how it works, but it does the job for me.

    I've been having nose bleeds for some time now and had the cream but without much effect. Eventually went to hospital and they found  I had some veins in tnside of my nose that required cauterising. Job done and sent away with a tube of the same cream.  Was told  not to blow my nose afterwards -  very difficult with a streaming cold on top of it all. Will have to see if the cream works if not I will try the Germoline.

    I have just been prescribed Naseptin by my GP! I have nasal congestion & a very red lining to both nostrils which dont give pain! But do bleed slighty first nose blow of the day! Apart from not having medical training I'll stick with Naseptin & give the "Germolene" a miss! I'll let you know in a few days how I have fared!

    Best Regards

      mine is exactly like yours , it also bleeds when I blow it first thing, I suffer with catahh as well, which I think is all connected, I've been using naseptin for 7 days, it's been better than it originally was, but still noticing pinky blood will go back to docs on Friday as the 10 day treatment will be up then, will ask the doctor about the germolene, if that works all well and good.

    A couple of years ago I had a massive nosebleed which resulted in me having to stay in hospital with tubes up my nose to moisten the inside. Turns out it was due to my nose being very dry, which it still is.  I was given Naseptin when I was leaving and told to put some on the end of a thumb and finger and to then transfer this to the bottom of my nose, but not inside.  It does the trick in that as soon as I breathe it in it opens my nostrils lessening the dryness and totally takes away the resulting headache.  I wouldn't be without it.

    hi Jonno, I am wondering about your symptoms. I get this too, in my case caused by an auto immune inflammatory disorder. What works wonders for me is spraying a steroid nasal spray over the affected area. Not sniffing it up the nose, merely spraying over the crusty part. It is a standard treatment for inflammatory disorders. I didn't just make it up myself or anything. Does your nose feel sore and burning at all??
