Child having runny nose, gave Rhinex, dry blood inside nose, irritates when touched. What could this be?

Hi, my 2 year old had a runny nose and I was giving him rinex for it and a few weeks later his nose would bleed in his sleep then it became very dry with big hard boogies in it and would cry if we touched his nose, it irritates him at night while he sleeps and he would cry and it also stinks like dead blood but we can t really see the blood at the moment it just seems very dry but when he cries a clear liquid with a bit of thicker mucus would come out. What could it be?

Hello, Welcome to healthcare magic. I infer that the dryness and the bleeding of the nose is an after effect of the Decongestant drug. And when he cries, the appearance of the mucus and fluid need not be worried about as it is a normal phenomenon for the tears to pass through a passage into the nose. The dryness will take some time to recover. Avoid removing the scabs as it will only aggravate the condition. Nose picking by the child can make it worse. You can take him to your ENT physician who might suggest a local application for the nasal mucosa if necessary. And it is only a side effect of the decongestant that was used for the cold. So do not be worried. Take care! Thank you!
