First of all, how old are you?

Do you take any blood thinners like aspirin or coumadin?

Any recent trauma to the nose or frequent nose blowing?

Doctor: Dr. A, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago

OK. The boogers and blood are likely unrelated to the diagnosis of diabetes.

Big boogers and bloody nose are often due to dry weather causing dryness within the nasal cavities. This can often lead to the formation of boogers/crusting as well as bleeding. The best thing to do for this is to apply vaseline ointment to your nostrils twice a day and use nasal saline spray 3-4 times per day to help keep everything moist.

Hope that helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
