I was talking to a good friend of mine today and she was telling me about how she thinks she has her very first sinus infection. Her teeth hurt on one side of her face, her face hurts when she leans over to pick a toy off the floor, and worst of all, she has this orange-red mucus coming out of her nose from the right nostril only.
She is not running a fever, so she was telling me she was thinking of just treating it at home with over-the-counter remedies, but I'm strongly advising her to see her physician. Yellow and green gunk I'm familiar with, but orange? That just doesn't sound good to me. Like maybe blood is in there too or something.
Have any of you ever had this color mucus come out of you before, and if so, what did you do to get rid of it? Did you see your doctor like I think my friend should? Any advice that I can pass along to her would be highly appreciated.
