Why would I have blood when I blow my nose? Or when I cough up mucus there is sometimes blood as well? I do not have a fever.

There will be nasal blood with blowing, spotty not copious. Some blood may be aspirated from the nose into secretions which run back into the nasopharynx and then coughed up. IF, however, blood is consistently coughed, further exam is best. ...Read more
