Sore throat since 2-3 days no fever or no cold but little bit of blood in spit 2 times. Is this anything to worry about?

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A couple days of throat lozenges and tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain. ...Read more

Why am I spitting up blood and phlegm if I only have sore throat?

Why am I spitting up blood and phlegm if I only have sore throat?

See a doctor: Sore throat and bleeding needs to be seen by a doctor. An otolaryngologist (ENT) can easily look in your throat to see where it might be coming from. The flexible scope is very easy to tolerate with local anesthetic. I have had it done many times to teach med students how to do it. It is usually nothing serious--bronchitis, nose bleed, etc. But you need to be sure. ...Read more

I've had a very sore throat for the past 3 days and have been spitting up phlem, but half the time there's blood or red/brown flakes. Is that serious?

Epistaxis: Have it checked anyway to make sure. By your symptoms you have upper respiratory infection or inflammation. The mucous dries up the superficial vessels from the kisselbach's plexus to the back of the throat, they pop and get mixed with the secretions especially in the morning. It still could be from the lungs although less likely. It is best to see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

I've had GIRD for years & recent diag. W/ Barretts. I just awoke w/ terrific acid reflux burning in throat, red blood in spit.& burning in rt chest.?

See your doctor.: It is not normal to have blood in your saliva or to have the new onset of right-sided chest pain despite presumed treatment for your chronic Gerd. Because of the acute change in symptoms, I would see your doctor or a gastroenterologist as soon as you can. I would see them soon, but in the meantime I would add in in chewable antacids such as Tums (calcium carbonate). Good luck. ...Read more

Go to ER: Unless you can see your PCP immediately you need to go and be professionally evaluated. Shortness of breath suggests something in your lungs and blood in mucous? From where is the mucous?
