Cold for over a week and red snot since Sunday. Only in right nostril. Is this normal? I've never had it before. X

Pretty normal I think, just wear and tear from lots of nose blowing.

Get well soon flowers

Thanks Mish, plenty of nose blowing going on I can assure you! Xx

Yeah, the blood vessels in your nose are quite fragile and they often get broken and start bleeding when you blow your nose more often than usual. Nothing to worry about, should heal quite fast but then may break and bleed again when you blow your nose some more. Hope you shift the cold and feel better soon! flowers
