Can high blood pressure and prednisone cause spitting up little amount of blood thats sometimes barley visible and lightheadedness?

Bronchiectasis?: The most common cause of hemoptysis (coughing up blood) is bronchiectasis. Why are you on prednisone? Asthma? You need a chest x-ray or ct scan of the chest to rule out anything worse. The light-headedness can be simply from the coughing, a strong vagal nerve stimulus, lowering both heart rate and bp. See a pulmonologist (lung specialist). ...Read more

So I had a tonsillitis about a week ago. It was cured after 5days because of the meds ,but then yesterday I started spitting blood. Help pls?

Prob NL recovery: This is prob normal. Your scabs on your tonsils are drying up & sloughing at about this time into your recovery. So minor bleeding is OK. Watch for sig bleeding though. Any sig bright red bleeding or pumping blood is an emergency. Get to the ER ASAP if you see that kind of sig bleeding. Eat a soft diet - nothing that could scratch your scabs. And you could gently swish & swallow ice water. ...Read more

Reflux: You have reflux and will need to be aggressively treated to get rid of the globus type sensation. See my other answers with reflux in the titles. You will need Prilosec twice a day and Zantac (ranitidine) at night for a minimum of three months and a reassessment at this time with a scope. The ent you see will look at your larynx with a scope to confirm the diagnosis before he or she starts you on treatment. ...Read more

Cough needs eval: If you're having daily cough it's important to be eval by your doctor. May be post nasal drainage which is treated with anthistamines. Or even acid reflux which is treated by otc meds like Prevacid or prilosec. Also need to r/o infection. More concerning would be the possibility of asthma if this is chronic.

My infant is starting to spit up during feelings. Do I continue to feed him and how can I help prevent him spitting up?

My infant is starting to spit up during feelings. Do I continue to feed him and how can I help prevent him spitting up?

Feedings and spittin: Hard answer without knowing your infant's age. But are you "burping" your baby after feedings. Babies take in alot of air using bottles and nipples - burping them will reduce the air bubble. Sometimes spitting up is due to formula issues - changing to a non cow's milk formula may help. Gaviscon drops may also help. If the spitting is getting worse - dicuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Get it checked.: Blood from any body site is a danger signal and should be checked. However in your case it may be from inflamed nasal passages with post nasal drip, inflamed gumbs, inflamed tonsils etc but you would most likely have symptoms. This is definitely something you should discuss with your doctor. Please get checked by your physician! ...Read more

I want to know if somebody spits in your mouth, does your DNA kill their saliva or does their saliva stay there forever?

I want to know if somebody spits in your mouth, does your DNA kill their saliva or does their saliva stay there forever?

Where to begin....: Spitting.... Kissing... It's the same thing. Saliva in and of itself is not "alive". Dna is genetic material, and in and of itself does not kill saliva (especially since it is not alive to begin with). Forever is a very, very, long time, so the answer is no. Can't tell what the point of of your question is, repost it if necessary. ...Read more
