This tissue is really quite thin and can dry out, crack and bleed slightly. The sinuses can also bleed, which can cause bloody nasal secretions or boogers. Trauma to the nose, big or small can do it too. Hope this helps. ...Read more
I have sinus pressure on left side of face, ear aches/head sometimes and have dried bloody boogers in left nostril at times. What is the cause of this?

Possibly: It may be a localized infection just in the front of the nose or a more generalized infection of the nose and sinus. Be careful not to clean the nose too aggressively as this can actually cause trauma making the nose worse. I like gentle cleaning and the use of an antibiotic ointment like bactroban (mupirocin) or bacitracin. Do not use an ointment with neomycin as this can cause bad skin reactions. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
