Blew my nose and saw blood

This is the first time I've seen this happen. I have not had a bloody nose in many years, nor am I a chronic nose-picker. I didn't have a bloody nose either - just when I blew my nose, the mucous was laced with blood. Not a lot, but enough for me to see it and know it was blood. It only happened once, when I blew very hard. I don't see blood when my nose is just running. Could it be I expelled blood because I blew so hard? I have blown with equal, if not greater force before, and I've never seen blood in the mucous.

I thought perhaps I had another sinus infection, but I am not getting those splendid raging headaches like I did the last time I had one. I caught this sickness from my friend, and he did say that he had a bloody nose the morning after he began feeling ill. Does this sound like a common cold?

Re: Blew my nose and saw blood

Probably the type of cold you are catching. Also if you are taking any kind of decongestant, this can dry out your sinuses and cause bleeding. Dry air and allergies also will sometimes make you have blood. Must be way up in your sinuses.
Good luck!
