Turbinate hypertrophy, bloody nose and spitting a bit of blood.. I'm scared ! help. I've also been moving homes, exposed 2 chemicals and dust cause?
Rhinitis: I assume you had your nose / sinuses evaluated before to get that diagnosis of turbinate hypertrophy. That also means you might have chronic rhinosinusitis.

16 yr girl has rhinorrhea appear when exposed to dusty or plants rich environment what could reduce this discharge?
Allergy treatment: The nose is first and foremost an air processing structure. It warms, filters and humidifies the air we breathe by making mucous. Mucous adds water to the air, warms the air and traps particles cleaning the air. Sometimes this system goes crazy and excessive mucous is secreted. Calming the nose with steroid sprays can help. If allergies are an issue antihistamines can help as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Almost never: In particular, I do not believe that inhaling common mold is a serious cancer risk. If it were, we'd probably all be sick by now. The body clears these spores readily on the mucociliary elevator. Some people are allergic and this can be troublesome, but as a risk for death, don't worry yourself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: You're living in an ocean of carcinogens -- there's stuff in lemons and pepper that would be banned if they were artificial chemicals. Cancer is multistage process of molecular events. You'll never prove, and have little reason to believe, that a particular one-time exposure -- even if quite rough -- had anything to do with a particular cancer. ...Read more
Yes: Sinuses have tiny openings into the nasal cavity allowing air exchange. When the nasal cavities are "congested" either from allergies (any cause), or a prolonged cold, these openings are blocked. The oxygen in the sinuses then slowly disappear and thus allows excessive growth of bacteria and consequently may cause sinus infections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
