Re: Sinus infection, Sinusitis or something else

first of all i'd like to start by telling you that taking the keflex for two days will not help you feel better so you are basically taking medication for nothing. if keflex was prscribed to you for a uti doesn't mean it'll work for your nose. certain antibiotics are prescribed for different things because they will work for one infection does not mean they will work for another. second of all when you are prescribed something you should finish the entire amount prescribed or it just doesn't work. as for the blood it seems like the inside of your nose is irritated, try the salinol ointment. if you have a sinus infection you would feel pressure, headaches, sometimes even pain along the teeth and the secretions would not be white. do you have allergies? the humidifier is a good idea. do you take flonase or nasonex? go back to the ent and ask questions. it sounds like your problem is inside the nostril and it could possibly be from the fact that you keep blowing it that it's just so irritated. go ask your pharmacist to give you something for the irritation.
