Can a sinus infection be bad enough to infect my mouth and facial bones but i don't cough or sneeze a lot, or have a fever? Bloody nose some mornings.

Usually not: This sounds like something much more than a typical sinus infection. Sounds like you need to see a doctor and possibly get a ct scan of the facial bones and/or sinus. ...Read more

I think i've had a sinus infection for about a week now because the mucus in 1 side of my nose is entirely bloody, is this a really bad thing?

I think i've had a sinus infection for about a week now because the mucus in 1 side of my nose is entirely bloody, is this a really bad thing?

Could be: Bleeding for a week is never a good thing. You may have a sinus infection but a presenting symptom of that isn't typically bleeding. I'd suggest a visit to your primary healthcare provider for an evaluation and recommendations for follow-up. ...Read more

I'm finishing a round of sulfa for a sinus infection.  Feeling much better. inside of my nose is raw,crusty,bloody & so painful.   Using saline spray?

Yes: Saline spray can help tremendously. If using mist, use throughout the day (at least 6-8 times) and if using irrigation (neti-pot), use at least twice/day. Can also apply petrolatum intranasally (Vaseline or Aquaphor). ...Read more

Your : Your sinuses may be draining, or you may be getting another infection. You can try saline nasal spray, and a humidifer or even a steam room to clear this up. There are also "netti pots", which you can ask your pharmacist about that can help drain your sinuses. If a patient has persistent sinus pain, fever, or vomiting, then they should consult with their physician. ...Read more

Are nosebleeds common when you have a sinus infection?

Are nosebleeds common when you have a sinus infection?

Yes: Anything that irritates your nasal membranes or causes excess dryness can cause nosebleeds. Colds, sinus infections, allergies, cold dry air, nasal polyps, and sniffing or inhaling irritating substances into the nose can all cause nose bleeds. Very high blood pressure can also cause nosebleeds. So can a low platelet count or other blood clotting problem. ...Read more

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?

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. ...Read more

Yes : With a sinonasal infection, the mucous membrane of the nose and sinuses is inflamed. It is extremely common to have bloody discharge or even some heavier nosebleeds. Treat the sinus infection as directed by your doctor, but don't forget increased oral fluids and nasal saline irrigations to flush out the nose and sinuses. ...Read more
