Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
Deviated nasal septum (DNS) can lead to frequent cold and blocked nose and bleeding is also noticed due to cold and drying of the mucus. Nothing to panic at this stage and you can continue showing to your primary doctor. Occasional bleeding dose occur in patients of deviated nasal septum. Keep your nose moist with nasal saline drops. Also avoid picking of the nose.
If the symptoms do not improve with medicines the definitive cure of DNS is surgical repair and correction. Do discuss with your doctor the option of surgical correction of DNS.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
Wish you good health!
