it feels like i may have or have had a sinus infection. will this potentially impact my asthma? could this be why i'm having almost daily nosebleeds?

Rhino=sinusitis does: Nose bleeds by themselves do not necessarily affect asthma. Nose bleeds may also be the result of hypertension. However, nasal allergy and sinusitis have a significant effect on the severity of asthma. You are on no nasal medication. See an allergist and/or ear nose and throat specialist asap. In the meantime use nasal saline spray and a lubricant such as rhinaris, nasogel, or ocean gel.
