I don't have severe allergies but mainly sinusitis. I usually use nasonex every night (helps with my morning congestion). With winter upon us i've had more bloody nose/snot this year than usual. I hate it..even if i blot my nose when eating hot foods i get a little blood. I tried laying off the nasonex a few days but i think i felt better with using it and having a bloody nose.
I have a log for various things..allergy symptoms, hormones/migraines. With the barometric pressure rising and temp dropping my face/sinus area just HURTS! of course the doc says if i use decongestants more than a couple fo days a week i'll have rebound congestion. Saline helps but only temporarily. I've even resorted to putting vaseline around the inside edges of my nose. Most of the time i can breathe fine, no real congestion just pain and dryness. I've thought of trying the irrigation but can't seem to get up the nerve to try it.
