The Runny Nose Mixed With Blood And Colds Did Not Heal In 7 Days?
At night, I am Lastrina aged 17 years, I had a cold over a week, initially a stuffy nose, then yellow snot, then recently I have a cold with blood for about 4-5 days, and today when I blew my nose like a blood clot too, accompanied by a cough but rarely, besides that I don’t feel anything, am I sick? Thanks
Hal Lastrina, thank you for your question
The mucus mixed with blood indicates the presence of a sore on the nasal mucosa involving the blood vessels. You need to know, the blood vessels located in the nose are generally very small / smooth and are located close to the skin layer. This causes them to be very brittle and perishable.
Here are some of the causes of mucus mixed with blood:
trauma due to rubbing / scraping the nose, or due to blowing your nose too tightly the nasal cavity is too dry, usually due to exposure to cold air or substances that irritate sneezing repeatedly due to allergic reactions to respiratory infections due to high blood pressure blood clotting disorders consumption of certain drugs, such as class blood thinners, antihistamine drugs, and decongestant drugs No need to panic when you find mucus mixed with blood. If the blood that comes out in large quantities resembles a nosebleed, you can do:
sit upright position your body forward and make sure your head is not looking up, but rather bent slightly so that the blood does not flow in the throat press the nostrils towards the middle, do it for 5-10 minutes (breathe with your mouth during this procedure) ice compress / cold nose and cheek area If the bleeding from the nose does not stop, it is recommended to seek immediate help from a doctor or hospital emergency room. Regarding the cold condition that you are currently experiencing, if it does not heal within 5-7 days, you should consult directly to a doctor so that you can get proper treatment.
