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 3 year old son has had a fever of upto 103 for 3 days and from the second day he was showing cold/flu symptoms. His fever is down now, but he has a little blood in his nasal mucus. He blows his nose as it is very runny and it does not appear as if he strains very hard when he does this, do just normal pressure then wipes. Is there anything to worry about?

I am a 53 year old female, 5 ft 3 ins and 13stone 8lbs. about 7 years ago I had a bad chest infection which I didn t take medication for as it happened over the Xmas holidays. Since then, whenever I get a virus or a cold the right side of my throat and chest feels heavy and I get a cough which takes a while to go away. Is this normal?

I am 38 year old female. 5 foot tall, 60 kg and relatively healthy. I have been prescribed antibiotics for sinus infection 2 months ago with not much relief have had 4 courses. In past 3 days have developed trimenigal neuralgia and was sent for CT. CT retured with polypodial mucosal thickening involving maxillary antra bilaterally including 3 cm polp in left antrum and 2 cm polyp in right antrum. Left polyp extending into and occluding the ostium antrum. There is also marked narrowing of the nasal cavity bilaterally. There is a small concha bullosa of the left middle turbinate. The post nasal space is clear . I am off to GP this afternoon and am worried and just wanted to know could this be the reason for TN? Thanks
