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.
Bloody crusty sore: These are caused by bacterial infection, usually staph but can be sreptococcal as well. You need to see your doctor, get a culture done. It is treated with Bactroban (mupirocin) Cream or ointment to be used locally and depending on the lesions you may need oral antibiotics. The condition is caused folliculitis.See 1 more doctor answer

Hi, I have hard crusty white skin which develops constantly inside the left interior of my nose. I pick it off after a few days but it seems to return?
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.

Embarrassing ques - I find my nose has much snot during the day. No allergies etc. It's dry, crusted at times. Not large. I can't tell until mirror. Why?
Nasal Mucous: The inside of the nose is a mucous membrane, and as such, it is continually producing and clearing mucous.
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.
I have a lump under my skin at the side of my nose it hurt at first n was a bit crusty but now nothing but it's still there?
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.See 1 more doctor answer

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.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Probably staph bacterial lesion. A DR can help you.
