Brown Phlegm Sore Throat
I have a sore throat for a few days now. Don't know what it could be? Last wednesday I felt a scratchy sensation in my throat. Didn't think too much of it. Woke up thursday morning coughing up dark brown phlegm with a sore throat. It's been five days now
Many: Many sore throats will last 7-10 days. Viral infections will resolve on their own. Bacterial infections may need an antibiotic00strep throat needs an antibiotic or there may be risk of complications down the road (kidney, heart). Given your smoking history, I would not wait much longer than that before getting a full evaluation. You are at an increased risk of oral/throat/larynx cancer. ...Read more
Phlegm is the thick, sticky mucus secreted by the surface of the respiratory tract during a cold or other respiratory infection. The respiratory tract includes the nose and sinuses, throat, voice box, bronchi, and lungs. Phlegm is mucus that may contain bacteria, viruses, respiratory surface cells, and inflammatory cells. Normal mucus is not phlegm, but a protective layer secreted ...Read more
I've had a very sore throat, hot and cold, tiredness and brown phlegm for 2 days. The phlegm is not being coughed up, but from the back of my throat.
What to do:: For significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician ; get a strep throat test/ culture. If you have strep throat, antibiotic therapy is imperative to prevent future complications. Consider tylenol (acetaminophen) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Saltwater gargles: mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle with aloe vera juice twice a day. Gargle several times a day. ...Read more

Just reached a cold country. Had a fever and headache, now fever is gone but having cough and bad sore throat, currently coughing up brown phlegm.
You are in the midst of an upper respiratory infection. The productive cough indicates there is moderate phlegm inside your lungs. Drink lots of water to help thin it out. Drink hot tea/honey for the cough and consider some cilantro (usually I do pico de gallo) to help bring up mucous. See an MD soon to make sure it's in recovery.

See your doctor: It is common to develop a bacterial infection like pneumonia after a viral respiratory tract infection. (I.e. A cold) This usually occurs shortly after the viral illness begins to improve and requires antibiotics. Symptoms vary but include fever, chills, chest pain, productive cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, tiredness, loss of appetite, etc... You need to have a doctor examine you. ...Read more

I have a sore throat, swollen glands, my ears hurt when I swallow and I am bringing up red/brown phlegm. What could it be?
Pneumonia?: This sounds like a standard respiratory viral infection that might have progressed to bronchitis or pneumonia. "Red/brown" suggest your sputum (phlegm from the bronchi or lungs) contains blood. See a doctor to be checked for bronchitis or pneumonia and possible need for an antibiotic prescription. Do it immediately if you have fever, chest pain of shortness of breath, or cough up obvious blood. ...Read more
I've had a very sore throat for the past 3 days and have been spitting up phlem, but half the time there's blood or red/brown flakes. Is that serious?
Epistaxis: Have it checked anyway to make sure. By your symptoms you have upper respiratory infection or inflammation. The mucous dries up the superficial vessels from the kisselbach's plexus to the back of the throat, they pop and get mixed with the secretions especially in the morning. It still could be from the lungs although less likely. It is best to see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

Viral: This is a viral upper respiratory tract infection which has travelled to the trachea or bronchial tubes.

I recommend that your physician examine you for diagnosis and treatment advice. Take adequate fluids, cough syrup ...Read more

Fever?: By themselves those two symptoms are hard to parse out. Do you have these all the time? Do you have a fever? Do you have a cough? Do you have muscle aches? Anyone else around you been sick?

Need more info: My recommendation would be to see a doctor asap since coughing up blood never has a benign cause. On the other hand it would be helpful to know how long you have been ill, to whom you were exposed, whether you smoke, have fever, chills, nausea, shortness of breath, etc. Make a list of everything and take it with you to the doctor. ...Read more
