Good evening, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
How can I help?
I am sorry to hear this. Pain in this area with blood on blowing your nose suggests you have a sinus problem.
With blood you should consider antibiotics as this sounds infective, if then this doesn't help you can use a intranasal steroid for a month. If this then doesn't help then I would suggest a sinus MRI and nasendoscopy via ENT to investigate this further and look for polyps.
If you have any form of hayfever/allergies, then I would suggest an antihistamine as well.
Blood pressure would have no implication on your sinuses. Shining a torch up your nose isn't suitable to exclude pathology. Therefore as I have mentioned about this is what I would do now.
Coughing up blood with a normal chest xray suggests this could also be from a nose bleed, and therefore if you still get regular blood, could also try Naseptin cream in the nostrils for 10 days.
Okay thanks, ***** ***** does suggest it is more likely sinus related. If you are worried then ask your GP for an ENT referral.
If that is what they think, then yes, but if the blood does persist, I would ask to be referred.
Well yes, picking your nose would make it bleed. But if it is something that regularly happens, it should be investigated. Avoid picking it though otherwise you will not know if you are just not allowing it to heal.
