What are the reasons for bloody mucous out of nose and throat while having the flu?

Irritation

Open-uri20130125-15066-lwjz4x
Your nose is irritated from the viral infection. The mucus membranes will become inflamed, dry, and crusty. Consequently , you will often have bloody mucus from the nose and bloody postnasal drainage into the throat. If nasal and sinus symptoms worsen , you may be developing a sinus infection that you will need to see your doctor for treatment.

Dr. Ronald W. Li answered:

Always have mucous and my voice is always weak and raspy. How can I clear my throat?

Increase fluids

Voice_disorders
Excess mucous and secondary hoarseness commonly occurs with an upper respiratory infection and/or allegic rhinitis. Drinking more fluids, like hot tea with lemon or honey, will help sooth the throat and liquify the thick mucous. If there is no improvement in a few days, then you should seek medical attention.

Can u have strep throat with no white just red swollen and so painful u can't swallow and green mucous ?

Red spots in throat

Teeth
Yes, in fact with strep throat you often do not have white spots on the tonsils, but instead red spots on the back of the throat and back of roof of mouth. Also, strep can cause bad breath, a headache, stomach pain, fever, and a sand-paper like rash on the stomach. If you think you have strep throat, see your doctor as antibiotics are needed to treat.
