Bloody Nose- Sinus Infection

My boyfriend has a sinus infection and today, when he blew his nose, blood came out. Is this normal for a sinus infection?

The toxins from a sinus infection irritate the mucus membranes of the sinuses, and can cause some bleeding.  If it continues, have him see a doctor for a proper diagnosis.

Hi riicky,
If you have sinus infections all the time, a visit to an ENT is recommended, to see if there is some kind of physical blockage causing them.

If there is not, then it's also possible that you have a chronic sinus infection, and here is the best way to get rid of those:

The Flip-Turn Sinus Flush is mildly risky, because you have to bend over to do it, preferably in a shower, but you can also do it outside on soft ground, or you can kneel down and lean over a bathtub, or perhaps a plastic basin or tub, with the shower running for steam.

While hypertonic saline is the best way to get rid of a sinus infection, hypotonic saline is a good treatment for irritated bloody sinus membranes.  It is best administered with a Neilmed Sinus Rinse.

Keeping the garlic pod in to your nostril  every day for five minutes and sneezing it out will resolve most of sinus problems.  Neti pot and Sutra Neti are the best solutions watch out on youtube.
