Keep out: Yes, old blood from a procedure may/will be seen. Some of it dries on the lining inside the nose. When our noses run, the dried blood is moistened and will drain as well. It is very important to not put your finger, or tissue inside your nose to try to scrape this out. Pulling this dried blood off the very thin walls can injure the lining and cause a nose bleed. If it bothers you, inhale steam.
