Pharyngitis: Most times, acute pharyngitis (infection of the back of the throat) are caused by viruses or bacteria. Symptoms of these infections include, but are not limited to: 1) sore throat, 2) runny nose, 3) cough, 4) sinus pressure, 5) otalgia (ear pain), 6) fever, 7) fatigue. Best to give it time and push the fluids! if not improving then you need to see a medical provider!

See an ENT: Blood from the nose could just be nosebleeds, but this is something i would check out thoroughly. There is nothing normal about coughing up blood.
