Can sinusitis cause a bloody sore nose? My nose is very dry and crusty but keeps bleeding and not healing
Sinusitis alone does not cause a bloody nose! Its DRYNESS. ..YOU NEED HUMIDIFICATION in your bedroom at night and going into your bathroom running HOT water in shower until the room STEAMS UP!!! (2X/day)
Do this for 7-10 days and the dryness, crustiness and bleeding from that crust will stop!!!!
If not See an allergist!
Hope this helps
