A Sore In My Nose That Is Crusty Yellow
Or impetigo: Yellow crusty sores in the nasal area are usually impetigo (bacterial skin infection) - but if the sore is always in the exact same spot, and starts with painful blisters, it could be herpes simplex. There are treatments for both, so you should see your doctor or a dermatologist the next time it happens, get it cultured, and find out which it is. ...Read more
Throat is red but not really sore. Only one nasal passage is red but I don't have a fever. I have crusty yellow boogers in the nose with a red passage?
URI: How long have you had the red throat & nose? Most upper respiratory conditions start as viruses. It usually takes 7 -10 days before becoming bacterial. You should take throat lozenges, gargle salt water, drink lots of fluids, use nasal saline, take acetaminophen or ibuprofen if you develop discomfort. If it gets progressively worse, you need to see MD for exam, culture, and possibly antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have been suffering from blocked sore nose and sometimes yellow thick mucus & constantly coughing for over 6 month could this be a sinus infection ?
Maybe.: Take an antihistamine, like diphenhydramine. If that works it is allergies. Stop all fragrances and aerosols in soaps, detergents, and home, avoid smoke and smoking, all of which are irritants to respiratory passages. If no better, this could certainly be a sinus infection. Get seen and treated then. ...Read more
Waking with sore head blocked nose blowing nose and yellow fluid drains out. Gp says there's nothing they can do?
Find another Dr.: Yellow discharge usually means infection, and may require antibiotics. In the meantime, I suggest Afrin nasal spray to shrink your nasal and sinus membranes, and open up your eustachian tubes. Also, get a cool mist humidifier, and fill it with one bottle of hydrogen peroxide and two bottles of water. The H2O2 will kill virus and bacteria on contact, and break down into harmless water and oxygen ...Read more

I had a fever, blocked nose and sore throat a week ago, i'm fine now except I have to blow my nose all the time and yellow thick phlegm in my cough.
Hi, bringing up dark yellow phlegm with bright red blood streaks, no cough, no sore throat, no blocked nose. Should I be concerned?
Bronchitis: Blood tinged mucus or sputum is often due to an infection in sinus or lungs. Many of us treat, unless bloody nose from blowing too much. Most of us will treat with antibiotics if it happens for more than 3 days. There are other causes, too, but it's a GREAT idea to get checked soon. In the meantime, avoid otc cough and cold meds, and fragrances and aerosols (which don't help, can make worse) ...Read more
