Blood in mucus.

I seem to have the sinus infection that will never end, unless I've suddenly developed allergies. I wake up in the morning stuffy (for several weeks now), and that was about it. But, for the past two days, when I blow my nose there is a small amount of blood. My nose doesn't 'feel' dry, but there's always this tiny staining of blood on tissues. It is not an official nosebleed, though.

Is this normal? Should I be overly concerned? I've already been checked out by a doctor when the symptoms first started (not for the blood though) and they said it was just a standard sinus infection that should eventually clear itself up.

Re: Blood in mucus.

You may have allergies, or it may just be a little sinus infection, as your doc said. My guess is that you have just ruptured some teeny blood vessels in the mucous membranes (from the nose blowing) and that's the blood that you're seeing. Happens to me sometimes, too.

Perhaps an over-the-counter nasal saline spray would help.
