Just to clarify...was this acute after carpet powder was used? The blood vessels could rupture from sneezing and if the dust is caught up in all the little nooks inside the nose, then this will aggrevate it - the sneezing is to clear the passages...

You can try to irrigate the nasal passages with a saline solution - 1/4tsp of "sea" salt to cup hot water to dissolve - bring to room temp - use to swab the nostrals (just about a 1/4" or less) twist a strong tissue or thin soft cloth (white cotton T-shirt)....you can also use to wipe the eye area and as a compress - also and herbal tea or reg. black tea bag that has been steeped as a compress to the eyes to bring some relief
