Nose soreness, crusting, bleeding, white sores, mucus in back of throat. What is this?

I have had a sore in my nose for about two weeks, alot of crusting, some bleeding. There appear to be a few white sores and the tissue is red and slightly inflamed. For the last two days, the mucus in the back of my nose/ throat has become thick and is causing me to gag. Could you tell me what this is and if I should see a doctor?

It appears that due to chronic or allergic rhinitis there might be having some infection in your nasal mucosa giving rise to this problem.
Take some decongestant medicine for 2-3 days.
Go for one antibiotic medicine for 3 days.
apply some antibiotic cream in nose.
Do not try to remove crusts from nose as it may precipitate bleeding from nose.
Avoid cold drinks.
Ok and take care.

I had gone through your query , it suggests that your are suffering from the rhinosinusitis with oropharyngitis.
In this type of our patients I advised the course of antibiotics, antiallergic, normal saline nasal drops with liquid paraffin .
Avoid nasal pricking .
Better to consult ENT specialist.

Wish you good health
