Hello Friend
Welcome to H.C.M
With little information and as per the history you have given and the clinical findings it seems that you are having acute infection/ Rhinitis . this is dangerous area of the face and infection may cause serious complication. you need to start Iv antibiotic and nasal decongestant ( oxymetazoline/xylometazoline).
I would suggest you to consult the Specialist if you don’t get relief as on examination the findings may be different and line of treatment may have to be changed. Please don’t hesitate to consult and ask for any more query. i will be pleased to answer.
With best wishes for a speedy cure
Yours sincerely

I have had dull headaches now for several weeks. And sometimes during the day my head feels heavy or cloudy. Sore throat many mornings. Occasionally when I blow my nose in the morning there is a bit of blood. Tonight in the middle of the night I had a nose bleed that would not stop. Of course it did stop, but after about 15 minutes. First time I have ever had a nosebleed really of any kind.
