On Omnicef for sinus infection, severe bleeding with mucus. Sign of infection clearing up?

I m on my 3rd full day of Omicef for a sinus infection . Before I went to the doc, I had very bloody mucous that started to clear up once I started the antibiotic . All of a sudden the blood seems to be getting worse this evening (my allergies are causing me to sneeze a lot which is causing my sinuses to drain and me to have to blow my nose every few minutes). Is this just a sign of the infection clearing up/moving out or should I go back to see my doc?

Hello and thanks for the query
Bleeding in sinus infection is not a good sign and you must consult your treating doctor as soon as possible. Every efforts should be made to control the bleeding from nose. Bleeding occur due to injury or peeling of the tissue and that may increase the area of infection.

It is good that the congestion is reducing but bleeding must be stopped first if it is worse. In my personal opinion you must consult your treating doctor for further management.
