Thick red mucus comes from the back of my nose. Not on any nasal meds and no broken skin. I have rhinitis. Any ideas why I have blood coming out?
Not really: But I don't think it's a good sign. Potentially you could have so much inflammation from chronic rhinitis that there is some actual bleeding, but this is fairly uncommon. The use of prescribed intranasal steroids or drugs of abuse can cause this, but you say you aren't taking those. You need to see an ENT specialist and have her/him take a good look with a scope into the back of your nose. ...Read more
