28 weeks pregnant. I woke up this morning with crusted blood in my nose and have been producing bloody mucus and saliva from my throat. Is this normal?

28 weeks pregnant. I woke up this morning with crusted blood in my nose and have been producing bloody mucus and saliva from my throat. Is this normal?

No: Although not normal, nosebleeds in pregnancy occur frequently. It is caused by increased blood flow to the tissue lining the inside of the nasal passages. Avoid using nasal decongestants, such as allergy pills or sprays. Use a humidifier at night. Blow your nose gently, one nostril at a time. Put a thin layer of a saline- or water-based nasal gel, such as NasoGel, inside your nose before bed.

I have crusty scans on the inside of my nose. What is this and what should I do about it?

Saline: Nasal crusting is quite common especially during the winter time when the air is too dry. I would start with some saline sprays and saline gel. If this doesn't help or gets worse you may need to see you doctor.

Irritation vs infect: You could put Neosporin or bactroban (mupirocin) ointment on it. Its best not to disturb the crust. Let your bodies immune system do its job and clear this on its own.

Vestibulitis: Can be associated with a dry nose, picking at the area, or using q-tips inside the nose. You can get a low grade bacterial colonization of the hairs inside the nasal skin (vestibule). This creates a chronic irritation, crustiness, and sometimes clear discharge with occasional blood in it. See an ENT for treatment, usually ointments and antibiotics. However, other problems need to be ruled out.

Bloody crust: Sounds like you need to find out the lesion present to cause the bloody tendency. Warfarin makes you more prone to bleed if your inr ratio is properly anti-coagulated. See your doc or an ENT for starters.

My nose hurts and is crusty is that a nasal infection?

Probably: You are probably a nasal staphylococcus aureus carrier (as is 25% of the population). You probably have a superficial nasal infection. If it persists you may need treatment with topical Mupirocin ointment or oral antibiotic treatment. An alternative explanation would be that you have allergic rhinitis that needs treatment with antihistamines or topical corticosteroid sprays. See your md prn.

The sunburn on my nose turned into a orange crusty layer and im very scared please help me

Not cancer: Sunburns are burns & the skin can bubble up and create an odd crust. That disruption of the skin barrier can also let local skin germs get in, so at worst this could be infected. It is not a cancer.

Infection: Usually lumps that hurt are infections. The fact that it drained is also important for infection. Try a warm moist cloth three times a day for a few days. You still may have more to drain. If it is infection it will improve. If not better in a week or if it worsens then see a doctor.

I've been having bloody phlem first thing when I wake up in the morning for the past 2 days. My nose is dry with bloody crust throughout the day.?

Possibilities...: Possible etiologies of coughing blood, called hemoptysis, include bronchitis, sinus problem, etc. But, malignancy must always be ruled out since it can also cause this symptom so you need to see your doctor. If a sinus/nasal problem is diagnosed as the culprit (given your other symptoms), there are very effective prescription meds that can be tried so see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
