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
IM 25 weeks pregnant and have had a severe cold / cough this week. Bloody nose the past 3 days , mucus is a very dark green. Today my phlegm had blood?
See a doctor: With these sorts of symptoms, you need answers. I would worry that your platelet count might have dropped as a result of the viral infection - allowing the blood to become thinner, such that you'd have nose bleeding and blood in the sputum. Hopefully you're plugged into an Ob/Gyn practice - I would call them and try to get seen today. If it's after hours and you're not doing well- go to the ER. ...Read more
Had phlegm for last 2 months, no coughing just clearing throat of the phlegm. Green in colour, little blood streaks on 1 or 2 occasions.
Over the few weeks been coughing up more phlegm white sticky like glue more frequently since having flu, also get blood stain when I blow my nose not always green can be clear I am asthmatic as well?
Mgt and workup: After the flu infection, there can be prolonged inflammation and casts in the airway. Your nose also may be inflamed. I would suggest keeping airway and nasal passages moist with saline and humidification. If you have any fever,pain, chills or night sweats, please see the ED or urgent care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Got phlegm ball that has a thick vein like texture with some green coloring & some blood twice in 2 days. I also have a viral infection. What is it?

You may also have developed a secondary bacterial infection, or the initial diagnosis may have been incorrect. But the answer is that without examining this material and you, it is impossible to tell for certain what this may be. If it keeps up, please go see your doctor. ...Read more

See a doctor: It sounds like you have seen doctors. How you can be sure you do not have an allergy is beyond me. Suggest that you try nasal saline rinses twice a day with a neti-pot (see your pharmacist), and perhaps combine that with a nasal steroid spray. If you are a smoker or around second hand smoke, stop. The material you bring up needs to be examined, and you need a face to face with a caring doctor. ...Read more
