You can expect bleeding from the nose during acute sinusitis
. In fact, using nasal decongestants can dry up your nose and make the mucus secretions thick. You need to start on antibiotics and mucolytics (such as ambroxyl/bromhexine
) as soon as possible, use saline nasal drops 3 drops 3-4 times/day after consulting your ENT specialist
. Also, drink plenty of warm water (it keeps the nose moist and liquifies the thick mucus) and do steam inhalation 2-3 times/day.
