What Causes Pain In Sinus And Blood In Post Nasal Drip?

I have chronic sinus issues with post nasal drip...recently(couple of weeks) I've been having increased sinus pain and blood in my post nasal drip...especially at night or first thing in the morning...I get the taste of blood and my post nasal drip is pink with blood. Is this likely an infection...or something more serious?

Hi , as per your clinical history it appears as you are having Chronic rhino sinusitis.
Most likely it is due extensive infection but you need to rule out other reason for blood stained post nasal drip .

Here my suggestion is that you should consult your ENT doctor for thorough examination, Diagnostic nasal endoscopy and treatment.

Meanwhile you can start steam Inhalation , saline nasal drop , mucolytic syp ,levocetirizine + Montelukast combination & antibiotic.

Hope above information helpful to you , Regards - Dr KK ( Karade ) .
