Sneezing Accompanied By Blood Clots During Flu?
good night, I want to ask you, I catch colds easily, if I drink ice it doesn’t take long to sneeze immediately “and the flu. actually not only drinking ice and then I have the flu, but even I only hold something that smells cold or I have my air conditioner I can get the flu right away. Previously (I forgot when) I once sneezed until it came out snot + blood. The blood was in the form of a small clot and only one, and today I experienced it again. But this morning the amount of blood mixed with mucus came out there were two clots, and just came out another lump. Do I have a serious illness? Previously in May 2016 I had tonsillitis surgery. and I caught the flu easily before the tonsillitis operation. Is there any connection? Or am I suffering from a serious illness?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Easily exposed to flu symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion and so on, can occur due to various things other than the flu itself. Among others are:
Allergic rhinitis, or a form of allergy that affects the nose most
Nasal polyps or the growth of certain abnormal structures on the nose
Chronic sinusitis or inflammation of the lining of the sinuses (head cavity) due to a viral or bacterial infection
Then regarding the condition of the blood clot when you sneeze, what you need to know is that there are many blood vessels in the nose. These blood vessels may burst under certain conditions, such as sneezing that is too loud, the process of expelling nasal mucus or mucus that is too tight, picking up the nose, and a tumor in the nose. So we highly recommend that you check your nose again with an ENT specialist for further examination using special tools to see if there are any abnormalities in the inner structure of your nose, and what is the real cause of your condition. The treatment you will receive depends on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, avoid sneezing too hard, avoid picking your nose or blowing your nose too loudly, avoiding the trigger, and if it's cold then avoid cold temperatures, get adequate rest, consume enough water and consume nutrient-rich foods. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
