Welcome to just answer...

Nose is a very vascular area with multiple blood vessels supplying different regions of the nose...

Similarly the inside of the nose is also very vascular with a good blood supply... Apart from the medial nasal septum the mucus membrane in the nose is loosely adherent and the blood vessels beneath the mucus membrane can be easily visulaized giving it a dark red appearnce...

Other reason for a dark red inside of nose is local inflammation or infection due to a boil or folliculitis or cellulitis giving it such an appearance...

I would suggest you see your doctor to confirm what is causing such redness inside the nose...

I hope this answers your question...

Thank you...
