Sore throat, headache, green mucus, blocked nose, ear pain

i have been sick for 11 days. it started with a sore throat and really bad headaches . now my mucus is green and i feel sinus pressure. I think my ailment mostly has to do with allergies. My nose has been really clogged and when i woke up this morning to blow it there was blood...but not just blood it was like in mucus or dried up or something? my ears have also been hurting me for a month now...the doc said they saw swelling but the didnt think it was infected.. do i have an infection now since my mucus is green?

Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,

You are having sore throat with blocked nose and may be all started due to viral infection and allergy but they can get easily infected secondarily by bacteria.

You should visit a ENT surgeon and get examined with X ray PNS to see if sinus are also involved,there can be DNS(Deviated nasal septum) or any other finding like polyp may be there.

Your treatment would need proper antibiotics,analgesic and anti inflammatory drugs with decongestants and anti allergic.

Nasal blockade can be relived by nasal decongestant drops or sprays.

Steam inhalation and keeping well hydrated helps.

Hope this information will help you

Take care.
Good Luck.
