Common Questions and Answers about Sore nose lining mucous membrane

Avatar n tn To get infected, these bodily fluids need to get into your blood through a mucous membrane (for example the lining of the vagina, rectum, the opening of the penis, or the mouth), breaks in the skin (like cuts), or be injected directly into your bloodstream.
Avatar f tn The inside of your hooter is also covered by a thin, sensitive layer called the mucous membrane. This works like a filter, and basically protects against infection whenever you inhale and sweep up stuff your body doesn't need, like dust motes, pollen, fluff particles... or coke. In snorting cocaine, the drug is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream via the mucous membrane. One immediate effect within the membrane is to shrink the blood vessels.
Avatar n tn This is due to repeated blowing of the nose and also due to pressure changes in the nose and eustachean tube which can cause blood vessels in the lining of the nose to burst. These vessels lie very close to the top of the mucous membrane lining in the nose and sinuses, and the blood can come from the lining in either of them. Besides this nosebleeds can be caused by low humidity or by drying of the catarrh and lining of nose.
Avatar m tn s on this forum and i had a lot of exposures with blood on my mucous membrane just wanted to know the difference between mucous membrane and other skin of the body i know if hiv positive fresh blood gets on any skin of our body it cannot enter as skin will protect it but what about mucous membrane like nose penis lips etc etc can blood seep in the mucous membrane?
3726455 tn?1347977394 and then i had gone through this forum for the pass few hours, and came to know that some of the people and doctors here commented that the nose mucous membrane must be damaged, and hiv cannot pass intact nasal mucous membrane? I am so lost and paranoid, i dont know which is true or not.): I hope someone can explain it to me how does these mucous membrane in the nose works, does it really provide a transmission route?? please help me im scared.. thank you so much in advance.
Avatar f tn Hello, Herpes simplex virus-1 causing cold sores can spread if a person touches the cold sore and then touches a mucous membrane or an area of the skin with a cut on it. Mucous membranes are the moist, protective linings made of tissue that are found in certain areas of your body like your nose, eyes, mouth, and vagina. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn Benign Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid is an autoimmune disease that is characterized by blistering lesions on mucous membranes in the oral mucosa (lining of the mouth) and conjunctiva (mucous membrane that coats the inner surface of the eyelids and the outer surface of the eye). Other areas that may be affected include the nostrils, esophagus, trachea and genitals. In this condition, autoantibodies react with proteins found in mucous membranes and skin tissue resulting in blistering lesions.
Avatar f tn I got a 10-day Docimycin treatment for sinusitis in January (fluid in left maxiallry sinus). There has been mucous membrane swelling in the left max. sinus for many years, Some swelling is also in the ethmoid sinus. I am using nose cortisol (Flixonase) and saline flushes and eye drops.
Avatar n tn Interesting, I didnt know, So that means once it attaches (ie sticks) to the mucus membranes it survives there? and how is it passed fom there to the blood stream from there?
Avatar m tn in apirl this year i got a handjob from a woman at that time i also had an herpes outbreak (sore on penis). two week i had a sore thoat and cough, sinus infection , burning of skin in the joint. to date i still have the pain in joint and the burning. do you think that hiv and what was my risk having a open sore on my penis.
Avatar m tn To answer some of your questions--my female partner has type 2 genital herpes, I have never been tested for herpes as far as I know but have never had any symptoms (although I understand that I might have something anyway). We have had intercourse maybe six times--always protected (condoms from start to finish). As I say, she hasn't had an outbreak for many years and faithfully takes antiviral medication. Actually, I don't understand this business about mucous membranes.
Avatar f tn Most who use cocaine snort it and because of this suffer from nosebleeds, sinusitis, hoarse and sore throats, and stuffiness and runny nose. In severe cases of long-term use, cocaine will erode the mucous membrane on either side of the septum and create a hole in the cartilage that divides the nostrils. This can lead to lifelong problems with nose whistling, secretions, crusting and nosebleeds.
Avatar n tn s really the mucous membrane contact that concerns me. What if there was blood on the sore and it came in contact with my nose?
Avatar m tn I know that the opening of the penis is where the mucous membrane begins, so I am worried.. What are the chances of becoming infected?
Avatar m tn , I was curious to know if the sores that are not on mucous membrane, leave a mark for awhile after the sore is healed? like a skin disoloration/pigment? when I say awhile I mean like weeks,or months,etc.? THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION!
Avatar n tn I have had this same thing for 20 years. Have been to several ENT's. Have been diagnosed with Ozena. There is no cure. Look it up and it will give you more info on it. Basically it is the deterioration of the lining and membranes in your nose. So your nose can't properly clean itself. I have to remove the scabby junk every day or I can't breath. The best help I have found so far is a Neti Pot. But you have to use it every day. Hope this info helps.
Avatar f tn Few days back I went to a public toilet. I was having a bad sneeze and runny nose at that time. I went inside toilet and the toilet seat was too wet. I washed my hand using soap solution, then dried my hand using toilet paper. I used toilet paper to clean toilet seat and because it was too wet, the toilet paper became wet and I could feel the wetness through the toilet paper. I then cleared the toilet paper. After that I used the same finger to clear my runny nose mucous.
Avatar f tn I have had a cough ever since i became pregnant, it still wont go away i have been sick the past 6 weeks with coughing, runny nose and sore throat, could this affect the baby? And how can i get rid of it?
Avatar f tn The whites of the eye and the inside of the lids are covered by mucous membrane, which is susceptible to the virus. I would not worry too much about it, however, especially if her eyelid was closed. Ocular herpes are thought by experts to be usually caused by a recurrence of an old oral infection, not an outside infection. However, it will be helpful to avoid kissing her on her mouth, eyes, nose, ears, anywhere that might have a mucous membrane.
Avatar m tn I smelled the droplets to see if it was anything suspicious at first. but would mucous membrane exposure of potential blood going through my nose be a cause for concern? Ive read people have gotten infected this route. Maybe im overthinking this as i am aware the methods of transmission are sharing needles and unprotected sex. Just wasnt sure how much blood can warrant infection, especially if it went into my nose or any other mucous membrane.
Avatar n tn Watery nasal discharge is seen in allergic rhinitis, infective rhinitis, viral infection, rhinitis medicamentosa (inflammation of the nasal mucous membrane due to application of topical nasal sprays, ointments and drops), or due to vasomotor rhinitis (in response to dry air). It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please consult an ENT specialist. Take care!
Avatar n tn What part of, "You didn't have a risk" is it that you don't understand?
Avatar m tn So you basically there is not way to by accidently touch blood and not know it and it get inside you through a mucous membrane like the vagina, butt or eyes and nose. And get hiv.
Avatar f tn Sharing drug paraphernalia as you described is classed as a risk.... Obviously the lining of the nostrils are classed as a mucous membrane, so sharing a rolled note with someone who is infected, which would have to have blood on it maybe a risk if the blood absorbs into your blood stream......
Avatar f tn Hi Doctor, Recently, I’ve learned HIV and hepatitis could be transmitted through mucous membrane such as the inside of the nose. I also know HIV and C hepatitis can’t be transmitted through respiratory secretions or saliva, but I’ve read that it could be of concern if there was blood mixed in them. I tell you this because I’m concerned about something that happened to me yesterday.
