  • Could be old blood from the infection. If it doesn't go away in a day or two see a doc.

  • the blood would be from little capillaries bursting when you blow your nose. You know how you feel the pressure building up and that tugging feeling in your sinus? When you have an infection, that could easily cause a couple little capillaries to rupture and bleed a little. Not enough to gush out your nostril, but enough to tinge the mucus still in your sinus, you know?

  • I think its probably dried blood as well. When I used to decorate cakes we used an air brush machine and sometimes when I blew my nose after work I would have rainbow boogers. It was really funny! lol
