General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi,

This indicates that the inflammation in the nose and may be in sinuses from where the drainage is pouring out into nose still continues and needs an active management. Yes, it is wise to consult an ENT surgeon as he will do nasal endoscopy and have clinical evaluation, examination and necessary investigations like Tests of blood and CT scan of sinuses if required.

You will be started with an appropriate management with nasal decongestant drops, oral decongestant, anti-inflammatory and antibiotics as needed. Avoid sudden changes of temperature zone from cold to hot and the other way too. Avoid allergens as sneezing is indicative of a possible allergy, identify and avoid. The cause of blood from nose will be found out and treated accordingly.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
