Thanks for your query.

The symptoms as mentioned in your post suggest that you are having an Upper Presence of yellow mucus indicates bacterial infection.

Continuous blowing of nose to expel out the mucus causes repeated trauma to the nasal mucosa, which makes it prone to bacterial infections.

So, it will be better to consult an ENT specialist for further management.
For symptomatic relief, you can use steam inhalation.

It will prevent mucosal blockage and reduce trauma to the nasal mucosa.

Wishing you a good health.

Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
