I ran into a glass door and hurt the bridge of my nose real bad. It had a bruise on the bridge of my nose and was swollen. I got hit a few days later in the same spot with a soccer ball and it immediately started bleeding and was very swollen. The swelling went down the next day but still is a little swollen and I found really dark spots on the bridge of my nose....the look like black heads but are much darker and dark stuff came out of them. Should I be worried?

Just want to double check....my 4 year old has never had an ear infection or any real illness. over the last few days, cough, stuffy/clear runny nose, ears started hurting yesterday. Now her eyes will not stop watering. Nothing serious, just a side effect, with the non stop watery eyes, correct? I have 3 other much older children and never happened with them. Thank you!

swollen mucous membrane I ve been suffering for almost two years from my nose where it gets swollen and feels clogged specially when laying down, which makes me unable to sleep and constantly tiered. and i noticed the colder air i breath the more redness inside accrues mixed with blood, then my nose gets swollen more from the inside which gives me difficultly in breathing. My nose is overly dry with no mucous. the only way i can have few hours of sleep is by using the nosal spray Xylolin. I did two surgeries now for reduction in the glans but felt no changes at all.

I had dry nasal mucous membranes and my nose was constantly bleeding yesterday. This is because i was around the driest and coldest weather which dried up my right nasal membranes causing it to bleed. It is now a day after and I'm going to a spa. I want to go into a steam room but I'm worried it'll open up my nose causing more intense bleeding. Is it safe for me to go into a steam room?
