Is blood in the mucous when you blow your nose nothing to worry

This answer was rated:

Is blood in the mucous when you blow your nose nothing to worry about when you have a sinus infection? I am assuming that all the blowing is causing blood vessels to burst? How long should a sinus infection last and is there anything you should worry about? Also What signs should you look out for in children under 8 yrs concerning sinus infections? Thank you
