What causes blood clot from sinus infection . Having sinus pressure no blood dripping only when blowing then coming out mouth from hocking from nose?

Sinusitis with clot: The inner lining of the nasal cavity is fragile. When dried out or inflamed, the underlying blood vessels of the nose tend to bleed.
