Why would there be blood in my mucus when I blow my nose?

Inflamed lining

Epiglottitis
There are a large amount of superficial blood vessels inside the nose and when the lining gets very irritated often there can be blood. You may have a sore or some other irritation in your nose that can be easily evaluated and treated by an ENT doctor.

Why do I have clotted blood in my mucus when I blow my nose?

Several

Lips
Could be as simple as dryness, viral infection, allergy, blood thinners, bacterial infection, deviated septum,septal perforations, tumors etc. Treatment depends on cause,so if 2-3 weeks of saline rinses followed by 3-4 drops of sesame oil 2-3 times daily don't help then see ENT.

Blood in mucus. More detail below. I have been sick for about a week and have blood in my mucus when I blow my nose. However, when I cough the mucus up there isn't any blood. The blood just recently showed up. Small streaks. I have been taking AMAX antibi

It may be that you have some irritation in your nose. Try using a humidifier, and when you blow your nose blow it very gently. Also, you could try saline nasal spray to moisturize your nose. If the bleeding becomes worse, if you develop fever or have any blood from your cough, or have shortness of breath, then you must be seen as an emergency.

I have blood in my mucous when I blow my nose and when I "sucked" the postnasal drip from my throat it was bloody. Is this normal?

Bloody mucus

Blood
Hello. The blood you are seeing is probably due to mucosal irritation. In the winter months, the air is dryer and irritation is more common. If frank bleeding is noted, then see your doctor for control.

When I blow my nose, the mucous is mixed with blood. Does this mean that my sinuses are inflamed and the source of the blood? Nose not the source.

Dry nose

Bloody_nose
This time of year it probably means your nose is dry. You can't know the nose is not the source of the blood, even if an ENT used a scope in your nose to look. If you're on oxygen, the nose is almost certainly the source. Use a saline nasal gel spray to help fight dryness, and humidify your oxygen if not already. Don't blow your nose vigorously. Try using a netipot or sinus rinse bottle.

I have had a runny nose for about a week now. When I blow my nose, theres A LOT of clear mucus It's getting really annoying. How can I make it stop?

Cause?

Head-nose
Clear nasal mucus usually suggests allergy, environment, or virus as the cause. Although annoying, it is better out than thick and in. older antihistamines may stop or decrease but tend to thicken mucus which is not helpful. The newer antihistamines may assist without harming. If viral perhaps should be allowed to run it's course

I woke up with a head cold yesterday and an oncoming cluster headache well today I blew a large blob of mucous out of nose and now blood clots.??

Nasal blood clots

Viral_uri
a cold can erode the small blood vessels in the nose, but also the blood can congeal with the mucus to give you the clots you are experiencing

Runny nose with (nasal congestion),headache, sneezing, sore throat in the morning only. Occasional blood tinged Mucous embedded on floor of throat?

Allergy?

Open-uri20120925-29833-r0359p
Most likely allergy, although a mild viral upper respiratory infection would have these symptoms too. An exam could settle which it is. If you have fever or aches then it's most likely a virus. See your doctor if it persists.

I have seen tiny blood spots in my nose mucous,for last 2mnths.no flue or cough but mucous present sometimes in throat n nose.why?shud i go to docter?

Most likely dryness

Cough
Small spots of blood especially if from both sides are often from dryness, viral illness, or allergy. All these conditions can also,cause excessive drainage. Start with salt water rinse then follow with saline gel, or even better, sesame oil 3-4 drops to the bloody side 2-3 times daily. If these suggestions don't help then seek medical care
