Erectile tissue in the nose sounds like the most likely cause. During the day it'll alternate. Although, it might be congestion. Tried a salt wash? Lean back until you can see the wall behind you, then gargle warm salty water into your nostrils.... (more)

Well, it's not like I react to using tissues (for blowing my nose), but I do wonder if I'm either slowly poisoning myself or decreasing my overall health. Here's why I am wary. Ever take a tissue out in a beam of sunlight? See all those... (more)

Go to a doctor. Antibiotics are not inherently bad for you. Don't misuse them and ask your doctor to test for ABRS before he places you on a course. This way you won't take antibiotics if you don't need them. You can also ask about a... (more)

A blue or purple nose is usually a very good indicator of low axygen levels in your blood stream. If your doctor is not aware of your purple nose, you should let him knoe ASAP! It could link to chronic, life threatening conditions such as COPD.... (more)
