Cold and flu and nose bleeds

Patient

Q: Dear doc when i blow my nose i see small amount of blood with mucus from my nose and i sufer to cold or flu with 3 weeks what shall i do thanks.

Doctor

A:   I do understand your concern. Most cases of flu and cold are caused by viral infection which run its course and no treatment is required. The nosebleed should resolve as the symptoms of flu subside.I would advise that you refrain from vigorous nose blowing. If your symptoms do not resolve, you may need to see an ENT specialist.
