Blood in mucus: Greetings. The presence of blood in your mucus is common when you have a virus or a bacterial infection. The mucus membranes are irritated which leads to an increase in blood flow to fight off this infection. Saline nasal wash can help wash away the thickened secretions and help speed recovery and add moisture. If this persists after the infection clears, see your ENT doctor. Good Luck
