The Nose Often Bleeds And Gets Blocked At Night?
Hello, I want to ask. Why every time I eat spicy food my left nose sometimes feels sore and smells a little, sometimes until my snot is mixed with blood and thick yellow mucus is rather dense. And every night before going to sleep my left nose is blocked but there is no fluid. Please enlighten me. thanks.
Hello, Mutriara Aisyah, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Stinky nose, viscous mucus, and blood can be caused by several possible causes:
1. Rhinitis, can be due to viral, bacterial, allergic or other things (vasomotor)
2. Sinusitis, can be due to infection, allergies
3. Rice polyps
To determine the cause, a physical examination is needed directly by the doctor. The doctor will examine the ears, nose, throat, face, and other general physical examinations. In addition, if necessary, investigations will be carried out such as a complete blood test and CT-scan. Treatment depends on the cause. If due to bacterial infection, it will be given antibiotics, and so on
Some of this can be done to relieve symptoms and prevent severity:
1. Get enough rest
2. Drink plenty of water
3. Avoid things that trigger allergies (if you have one), air pollution (for example cigarette smoke, vehicle smoke), strong odors, etc.
4. Clean the nasal passages
The methods above only relieve symptoms but do not eliminate the cause, so keep going to the doctor if this continues to repeat, does not go away, yellow / green and thick mucus, there is fever, headache, disturbing sleep, making shortness of breath, or disrupt activity.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
