Hi Sharon,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
This seems to be acute sinusitis (infection in the sinuses). You need to do steam inhalation 2-3 times/day, drink plenty of warm water, use saline nasal drops 3-4 times/day and also visit your ENT specialist for a thorough check-up.
Take care

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Mucus from nose stained with blood usually occurs when you blow the nose very hard. Try to moisten your nose with some oil or normal saline as nasal dryness is one of the causes of frequent minor nasal bleeds. Regarding blood under nasal septum it can be told on examination only.

For the past 2 weeks, my nose has been consistently stuffed up with mucus and blood mixed together when i blow my nose. I have been needing to blow my nose more frequently, but instead of it being runny, it s drying on the insides of my nose causing frustration. I wonder why it is doing this more recently. Please let me know your expertise. Thanks

Hi, When I blow my nose I am getting a fair amount of blood coming out, a lot of which seems to be old do to it s colour. I m also getting the same thing when I wake up in the morning and cough out mucus . It s winter now and I have had a bloody nasal drip in the past due to it being so dry, but what worries my here is the amount as well as the dark colour. I have no other symptoms to speak of other than a soar throat earlier in the week that lasted for maybe 3 or 4 days. No cold or anything came after though.

Hi my daughter is 3 years old and has had a slight runny nose from her left nostril for over a month now without any cold symptoms. Over the past couple of days its been bleeding on and off and pussing and stinks of rot. Any idea of what this could be? I tried to push the stuff out of her nose and its like a bloody puss and it seems to really hurt her.
