    Nose bleeds on sutent?

      I had a very dry nose and some oozing while on Sutent. I started using a dab of Hydrophor or A&D ointment to help keep my nose from drying out, as this is what the Oncology Nurse Practitioner recommended. I continue doing this even though I've switched to other chemo regimens. Speak with your husband's oncology team, and find out what they would recommend.

      I didn't take Sutent but during my chemo treatments, my nose bled when I blew it because of sores in my nose. I used nose gel (OTC) inside my nose & saline sprays to keep it moist. Also, my primary doctor prescribed antibotics since I had a sinus infection. The gel & antibotics worked, after a week it stopped.
