Hi doctor,

Today I was in a fully airconditioned room with low temperature and when I returned to my room and when I spit the mucus, a pinch of blood came from my mouth. What would be the reason? One year and five months back, the same happened. Please help me. I stopped smoking one month back. I am 26 years old, and male.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The bleeding you had from your nose can be because of sneezing (forceful). There might be a small injury inside the nose that might have lead to the bleeding. I will advise you to avoid nose picking and keep your nostrils moist so as to allow the wound to heal. Regarding your acid reflux, I would like to know about your lifestyle and dietary patterns. What do you eat and your occupation, your sleeping time?


Treatment plan:

Liquid Paraffin two drops per nostril for seven days.

Preventive measures:

Avoid forceful sneezing.
