please can you advise
Well Elaine, I’m not sure what can cause the blood in the mucus, but smell and the mucus itself is usually caused by some bacteria. Infections in the nasal cavity are not that rare and can easily happen to young ones, like your five year old son.
Now, the swollen glands might not be connected with nasal infection, but they can amplify the infection. As BedsonTrudeau suggested, it might be smart to consider drainage of the lymphatic system. This of course can’t be done home, you will need to see a doctor for this procedure.
Is your son experiencing any headaches? Does he have any pain around his nasal cavity? If there are headaches, you might even consider the sinus infection.
