For the past month I've been getting blood in my left nostril (and only in my left nostril), not a lot, I don't think they can be called nosebleeds even, seeing that they do not flow or drip out of my nose. Basically when I blow my nose, I notice blood on the tissue, sometimes more than others. When I stick a tissue up my nose, sometimes I'll see blood, sometimes I won't. It happens in mornings and can recur during the day as well. Sometimes when I blow my nose for the first time, it's all clear, but the second time has blood. Or maybe nothing when I blow, but there is blood when I stick a tissue up there, or vice versa.
I've asked a couple of ENT surgeons and they say it's caused by my allergic sinusitis. Though I did start getting it when I had a bad attack a few weeks back, it's just not getting better. And I live in a constantly humid climate - though I use indoor heating occasionally, air humidity around me is constantly around 70%, so I'm not sure how much dry air accounts for it...
Basically I'm asking if anyone else has had experience of similar things? I call it persistent, but it really is come and go, and surprisingly, when I had a cold and had bad sinus problems with runny and blocked nose, no blood showed up for a week. Now that I'm better, it's back again. So frustrating!
Thanks again for listening :)
