What causes bloody boogers?

What causes bloody boogers?

Nose bleed: The obvious answer is a nose bleed. The nose is pretty complex, though. The lining tissues if the nose and sinuses is called mucosa. 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.

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?

MY ACHING HEAD: Sinuses are air-filled structures in our heads that warm & filter the air we breathe while decreasing the weight of our skull. When inflamed and filled with mucus, it is like having heavy, water balloons pressing on your face from the inside (ouch). Consider antihistamines (Cetrilizine) and/or decongestants (Pseudoephedrine). If not improving, consult me and we'll figure it out together. ...Read more

I have bloody boogers, what does that mean? I have a throat pain and feel lightheaded too...

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A couple days of throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain. ...Read more

Dry nose: In winter months, relative humidity decreases. This is especially bothersome when sleeping - the dry air is very irritating to our nasal mucosa.

It sounds like you have this problem. Consider using a fingertip full of vaseline to coat the inside of your nose before bedtime, and run a warm mist humidifier in your bedroom. If the symptoms persist, see your physician. ...Read more

Is a green booger and bloody nose in a two-year-old a sign of infection?

Is a green booger and bloody nose in a two-year-old a sign of infection?

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 more
