A month ago I had a terrible smell in my nose - I've had it before. My nose was clear but I had pressure in my sinuses. I was given antibiotics and took them for a week, but they didn't make any difference. After 10 days the smell disappeared (thank goodness). Now, over the past four days, once again the pressure is back in my sinuses and when I blow my nose it's bloody, particularly on one side. Interestingly, it's the opposite side from the previous problem a month ago.
Is this bloody mucus a sign of further infection? How long is it likely to last? I don't want to bother my GP again and am using saline drops at the moment.
