Have flu and slight cold, developed bleeding from nose. Cause for the nose bleed?

Hi I have had the flu and now a slight cold with allergies and I never got a nose bleed until the flu a couple weeks ago and are still getting them till this very day. Today I got one it lasted a pretty good amount of time and sometimes the blood was on the darker side. At the very end there was a dark blood slime. Whats a cure to stop getting the nose bleeds I try to keep the room moisturized best I can.

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. It might be helpful to know that when you have a cold from allergies, your nasal discharge usually help clear the allergens, however, when it is in excess the discharge usually crusts in your nose and hardens to stick to the sensitive epithelium of the mucous membrane of the nose. When you blow your nose hard it sometimes bleeds, however this does not long too long. I also believe that you are doing your best to avoid this and it might be helpful to get a good treatment regimen from an allergist/immunologist who can help recommend the appropriate medications as well as test for the allergen that you need to avoid. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
