blood shows when blowing nose

Is there something I can do and should I be alarmed?

Re: blood shows when blowing nose

At this time of year I would say it's dry nose from the heat being on. Try a saline spray daily.

Like the other poster said, it's very common in the winter and probably no need to be alarmed. I use nasal saline and I have a humidifier for my bedroom at night.

Try to drink as much water as possible too.
