Hello, good morning Yulia ...
Sinusitis is an inflammatory condition in the sinuses. Sinus is cavities found in facial bones, which function to control the temperature and humidity of the air entering the lungs, and to filter and clean the air that enters through the mucus it produces. Symptoms of sinusitis include:
pain on certain parts of the face when tapped or pressed, for example on the cheeks or forehead
greenish yellow snot discharge that can smell unpleasant or even accompanied by blood
feels mucus that runs down the throat
sense of smell decreases
The risk of sinusitis can increase due to the following: fungal infections, dental infections, nasal injuries, diving activities, the presence of foreign objects on the nose, and others.
In addition to sinusitis, complaints of mucus mixed with blood from the nose can also be caused by other conditions, such as the behavior of bladder or sneezing too strong so that it injures the blood vessels of the nose, as a result the formation of mucus mixed with blood. In addition similar complaints can also be found in nasal polyps, foreign bodies in the nose, nasal cavity tumors, etc. To ascertain what disease you are actually experiencing, we recommend that you consult a ENT doctor. The doctor will conduct a question and answer about complaints, conduct a physical examination, and if needed then the doctor will suggest additional examinations, one of which is an X-ray examination of the head. We cannot confirm whether the condition you are experiencing is dangerous or not without checking you directly. Consult the doctor who examined you, yes .. If you suddenly feel a severe headache, high fever, stiff neck, sensitive to light, or even seizures, immediately consult a doctor.
I hope this helps ..
