Brief Answer:
Need more details

Detailed Answer:
Hii. Hope you are doing well. Please give details of history whether you are having sneezing, running nose,headache,fever. Please let me know whether there is throat pain and difficulty in swallowing and for how many days. Sometimes due to cold or excessive sneezing there may be mild blood stained discharge. Better you consult an ENT surgeon and undergo a rigid nasal endoscopy and X ray pns. Start nasal spray fluticasone, antiallergic tablet,steam inhalation and betadine gargle. Review with reports. Get well soon.
