Depends: An md consult would not be out of order at your age. It is likely pharyngitis or bronchial spasms secondary to a moderate respiratory infection or even allergies.

Sore throat, stuffy/runny nose, headache, chapped/bloody lips, coughing up blood. What's wrong?

You need exam by Dr.: Coughing up blood should never be ignored and should warrant an office visit or at least a phone call to your physician. A normal cold will not usually result in coughing up blood unless the coughing was very prolonged and severe. Even then it's best to speak with your physician as
it is one of the warning signs of lung cancer.

Chelilitis is the term for inflammation of the lips. See: http://bit. Ly/1pgW3B4 ...Read more

Hi, I have a slight cold a bit of a snuffly nose but no sore throat or cough, I just brought up phlegm and there is blood in it? Streaks of blood?

Epistaxis: Bleeding from the nose due to superficial irritation associated with viral URI may occur, and its dripping from the rear of the nose into the nasopharynx may produce small amts of blood in phlegm.
