A couple of months ago I got a scab on the inside of one of my nostrils, that mixed with mucous and eventually came out but I believe did so before it fully healed. The first scab was slightly painful to the touch (exterior of the nose). Since then I occasionally have bloody boogers from either nostril and specific areas inside each nostril that seem to accumulate more mucous and/or get only slightly scabby. None of them are painful to the touch like the first scab. Sometimes I can smell a slight odor from the mucous inside my nose. Not like rotting flesh, but perhaps like blood, a scab or slight infection (?). The symptoms have not worsened over time nor are they even necessarily consistent, which is why I'm hesitant about it being an infection, but I am still curious about it (particularly the slight odor and small amount of occasional blood in the mucous). I have never in my life been one to suffer regularly from fever blisters, cold sores, bloody noses, bloody boogers/mucous etc.
