Bloody nasal mucous: The blood vessels in the nasal mucosa bleed easily. Many people have bloody mucous from nasal blowing, picking, drying from AC or central heat. It sounds like you may have an upper respiratory infection or a sinus infection. Try bactroban prescription antibiotic ointment to the middle of both nostrils at the septum with a qtip or perhaps bacitracin to help healing. Cool mist humidifier, too. ...Read more

I am having cough and cold from last 16 days now when i clear my nose blood comes out?

Probably sinusitis: You probably have a sinus infection causing inflammation in your nose leading to more sensitivity of the linings and bleeding. By 16 days it's no longer a cold and i would consider seeing your doctor and getting placed on antibiotics. When you blow your nose make sure you don't stick your fingers in your nose and rub as this just irritates the lining of the nose and can promote bleeding. ...Read more
