Can you please let me know what your hemoglobin level is?
Has it dropped any because of the bleeding?
This is Dr. David
I am another expert here.
sorry for the delay.
you could have a sinus infection causing bleeding from your nose.
do you have sinus congestion?
usually bacterial infections of the sinuses are easily treated with a course of antibiotics.
are you coughing up blood?
yes, I am here.
did you have a chest CT scan? that would be better than a chest xray.
you need a sputum culture to check for lung infection.
lung infections can cause blood.
have you had a sputum culture yet?
what did the chest CT scan show?
you didn't say you had a sputum culture?
I would get a copy of your chest CT scan report.
do you have the CT scan report in pdf or jpg format?

I would ask your doctor for a course of antibiotics
such as amoxicillin or penicillin
this usually helps cure a nasal sinus infection.
allergy medications can help
ask your doctor for a course of antibiotics for a possible sinus infection
you don't use drugs like cocaine right? these can cause damage to your nasal septum.
I'm in the USA. I can't email you your NHS scan report.
that is good
you need to try a course of antibiotics
and also allergy medications
are you willing to talk to your doctor about a course of antibiotics and allergy medications.
you can buy allergy medications over the counter at your drug store.
let me know if you have other questions.
