I get blood on my pillow, from my mouth, each morning I wake up. What is the cause and what should I do?

Bleeding gums?: This usually means bleeding gums, so your first move should be to see a dentist. If gum inflammation doesn't explain it, your nose and sinuses are the next most likely possibility. I'm guessing the dentist will find the explanation, but if not, see a doctor. In the meantime, don't be overly worried. Most likely it is nothing dangerous. Good lucik! ...Read more

If I sleep in fetal position only, my saliva flows from my mouth that stains my pillow a litttle brown. But I do not seebloodinmymouthwhat is this?

Probably blood: For blood to tinge your saliva and thus stain your pillow slightly brown, not a lot of blood is required. It could be a sign you have gum disease and during the night you grind which causes slight blood seepage around the teeth and leads to the stained pillow. Your saliva would dilute the blood so it wouldn't be readily visible in your mouth. There may be another cause, however. ...Read more

I slept in my bed with dog and he urinated near pillow and I didn't realise if cut hands or mouth touched the urine would I get leptoscirosis?

Not very likely: Even though theoretically you can contact leptospirosis from urine of infected dogs, but it is very very rare for a house dog to contact leptospirosis. There have been reports of house dogs contacting leptospirosis by licking the urine of infected mice that entered the house which is very rare in us, and your dog if infected will be sick, and current canine vaccine gives partial protection in dogs. ...Read more

You could also try nasal saline rinse (neti pot) prior to going to bed to clean and rinse your sinus and see if this helps. ...Read more

Make sure you brush & floss well regularly & your gums' health will improve.
