What are these symptoms of dry blocked nose, bleeding from nose , dry cough and mild sour throat ?

I am 33 yrs old. My problem started 5 weeks ago, when I moved into my new apartment. Every morning I woke up with a dry blocked nose. After a week, I started to bleed from the nose because the dry mucus would scrap my inner nose. 3 weeks later, I heard about netipot and I bought one and with that I got some relief. Three days later I started with running nose, dry cough , mild sour throat , sneezing and left ear aches at times., Last night left eye got puffed up. I dont have fever or headaches. I vacuum and dust my house regulary, so I doubt its dust related. What else could be the cause and how can I treat it. Are my symptoms normal for a common cold / sinus or should I be worried? I dont want to miss a day s work to visit the hospital just to be sent back home be coz its a typical common cold symptom. Please advice.

welcome to healthcaremagic
most probably it is due to dust allergy
protect yourself from the dusts while cleaning
use mask .it may help to some extent
in acute attacks ant allergic like levocetrizin 5 mg daily may help
you may use normal saline nasal drops for nasal stuffiness
it is better to get consultation from e n t surgeon and be sure there is no other problem

My four year old son recently had a pretty bad bloody nose in the middle of the night. He has has these before in the winter, so we didn t think too much of it. (There is a humidifier in his bedroom that runs all night every night, and we put Vaseline in his nostrils at bedtime.) Just a few days later, he had a meltdown from being overly tired, and his nose started to bleed again. Just a little this time; it stopped fairly quickly. After this episode, he developed a hacky, dry cough, and he s had another incident of his nose bleeding slightly when he started to cry. He doesn t have a fever, but this dry cough has persisted for two and a half days now, and he s never had nose bleeds this frequently before. We have just today added a larger humidifier in our living area of the house to see if that will help. He takes a high-quality multi vitamin every morning, and we are adding a children s C supplement now. Any ideas what this could be? (It hasn t been a particularly cold or dry winter here.)

I have been sick for 5 days. It started with a dry cough that hurt my throat and chest. Then for 3 days it was mild fever, chills, runny nose, slight cough, aching legs and hips, no energy, no appetite, and watery stools. Today I have had no fever, no chills but, still alittle snotty with a deep non stop cough. I am starting to gain my energy and appetite back as well. Does this sound like flu?

Hi, My husband had severe coughing spells after a bout of viral. The cough was dry and the throat felt itchy so much that he couldnt sleep. The doctor prescribed augmentin and anti allegics (levocet) which he took for a week but no efect and it gets worse when he is lying down. there was no effect of medication. so we shifted to hmeopathic medicine..though there was some relief..now he can sleep at night...but the throat has worsened...now his voice is hoarse and when he speaks it induces cough and when he eats or drinks something even mildly hot or salty it makes him cough so much that he he sometimes choke...n when he coughs his nose blocks too...maybe that causes choking...he went to doctor again he prescribed zocef and levocet ...tht thing is we dont know what is the reason for that...earlier the doc said it was just nasal drip...but the cough was too severe so we dont know what to believe

For the past month or so my right hand side nostril leaks 2-3 drops of clear fluid (no taste/smell) whenever I lower my head e.g. bend over, lie face down. No obvious inflamation/obstruction or recent cold, flu, or nasal/head/eye injury. I am male, mid 50's with no allergies, headaches, etc. and occassionally snore if lying on my right side (so I am told!) Septum has always been slightly 'curved' towards right hand side so nasal lining will touch sides during a cold. Non smoker. My partner cannot see any obvious nasal obstruction/swelling/lump but cannot see as far up the right nostril.
