Brief Answer:
monitor for now, it is not uncommon with infection

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia or sinus disease cause inflammation/irritation of the airways and sinuses.

Irritated or inflamed airways may bleed. This is not uncommon.

As the infection resolves, this tendency to bleed would also resolve.

Bleeding is only a concern if it occurs persistently when there is no infection or allergy present (allergies can also inflame the airways).

You can monitor for now

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
