I have dark red mucus from blowing my nose. What is the cause of this?

Hard to say.: Red colored mucus may be something benign such as a superficial blood vessel opening up when you blow your nose. But it could more serious and could represent an autoimmune disease such as wegener's granulomatosis. You need a rhinological (nose) exam with an endoscope to make an appropriate diagnosis and proper treatment. ...Read more

I've had bright red blood in my snot for over a year now. I have it everytime I blow my nose. I also have a constantly blocked nose. What is it?

I've had bright red blood in my snot for over a year now. I have it everytime I blow my nose. I also have a constantly blocked nose. What is it?

Probably dryness: Most likely the inside of your nose is dry assuming you're not using any intranasal medications. In some patients dryness creates an inflammatory condition so there is also congestion. Suggest saline to cleanse any mucous or crusts then sesame oil 3-4 drops each nostril if not, allergic to sesame. Do this 2-4 times daily. Compounding pharmacy might be able to get pharmaceutical grade oil- smells ok. ...Read more

For as long as I can remember (7+years) when I blow my nose there is often flecks of red blood. Chronic allergies and a stuffed nose. Likely the cause?

Hopefully no more: Than the result of the chronic allergies constant irritation of the delicate membranes causing little bleeds from surface capillaries. The force of blowing frequently may also play a role - especially if often and hard. You might consider seeing a doctor or allergist for help. There are topical steroid inhalers that can lessen the inflammation and other strategies too. I suffer it too. It stinks. ...Read more

For the past week and a bit when I wake up and blow my nose there is a lot of blood. Bright red. My nose is always blocked and my throat is dry.

Water water evryware: This can happen sometimes if you are in a very dry environment and there's not enough moisture to keep your nasal passage moist. Drink plenty of water and you can also use a nasal saline rinse to help clear out your nose. A humidifier while you are sleeping may be helpful as well. ...Read more

I have a runny nose, dry cough and sore throat & one red and watery eye, and after blowing my nose, the vision got a little blurry. Is this normal?

Is it possible to lose hearing temporarily due to hard nose blowing?

Possible: There is a communication between the middle ear and the back of the nasal cavity leading to the throat, named eustachian tube. Most commonly allergic inflmmation and secretions may block this important drainage duct with accumulation of fluid behind the eardrum, interfering with hearing. When drained, hearing returns. 'popping' during flights involve the opening/close of this tube. ...Read more

Child put a wad of glue off of mag in nose she says it sucked up there and I can't see it. I tried moms kiss and nose blowing. 3 days no sign of it?

Child put a wad of glue off of mag in nose she says it sucked up there and I can't see it. I tried moms kiss and nose blowing. 3 days no sign of it?

Time for a visit: An exam with specialized lighting can usually identify retained foreign bodies in this area. I sometimes retrieve wads of paper, food, beads or whatever from this location. It can get wedged up there pretty tight. Afrin (oxymetazoline) squirted up the nose can shrink the walls a bit and help a kid sneeze it out. Failure to remove it usually results in an infection at the site. ...Read more

My nose is quite crooked from frequent nose blowing (allergies) and pressing harder on one side. Is there a non-surgical way to correct this?

No great solution.: The best way is still surgical correction. Absnet that, you may try using BreatheRight nasal strip to pull the nasal wall away from the septum. However until Channel or Gucci gives this device a brand recognition along with a high price tag, it probably should not be used in pubiic area. ...Read more

Waking with sore head blocked nose blowing nose and yellow fluid drains out. Gp says there's nothing they can do?

Waking with sore head blocked nose blowing nose and yellow fluid drains out. Gp says there's nothing they can do?

Find another Dr.: Yellow discharge usually means infection, and may require antibiotics. In the meantime, I suggest Afrin nasal spray to shrink your nasal and sinus membranes, and open up your eustachian tubes. Also, get a cool mist humidifier, and fill it with one bottle of hydrogen peroxide and two bottles of water. The H2O2 will kill virus and bacteria on contact, and break down into harmless water and oxygen ...Read more

Sputum: 20 year old woman with persistent respiratory illness.
Do you work in a smoky environment? Studies show that in patients who develop bronchitis, the color of sputum does not necessarily determine that it is a bacterial infection, up to 90% of bronchitis is viral.

Everytime I blow my nose I get fair bit of blood mixed in with green mucus going on two weeks not sure what it could be could it be anything serious?

Sinus infection: You probably have sinusitis. If you are a non-smoker then it is likely viral and you just have to wait for your body to clear the infection. If you have pain in your face and teeth, fever over 101 or you feel it is getting worse then see your doctor. You may need an antibiotic for a bacterial sinus infection. In the meantime, use a nasal saline spray and OTC cold remedy such as Dayquil. ...Read more
