My throat and part of my sinus don't feel good when I am in an air conditioned room and sometimes have been spitting blood when to much aircon?

Allergic rhinitis: That is part of the allergic rhinitis syndrome. You develop allergy, small amount of mucous but enough to dry up the blood vessels in the back of the nose and throat they are engorged, hence the congestion, and then pop, hence the blood in the spit. Main treatment is avoidance, and if unavoidable, try antihistamine like Allegra or Claritin and the allergy nasal or steoid sprays. ...Read more

I am taking Accutane for two months now. Recently I am spitting blood coming from my throat. Is it normal?

Maybe: Accutane can and does cause dryness of the nasal mucosa. This can cause irritation and possibly easy bleeding. If this happens farther back in the nose then you could get a slight amount of blood in the back of your throat. This could show up when you spit. However, i really think you should have your dermatologist take a look. ...Read more

What might be the cause of spitting blood without injury? Throat is a little sore. Will be scheduling an appointment soon, just wondering what's wrong

2 Ideas: It may be periodontitis or gingivitis causing the gums to bleed but that would not cause a sore throat most the time. With a sore throat though, it might also be a sinus or throat infection or drying that is causing the bleeding. Start with your dentist if it has been a while since a good exam. ...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

Gium disease: If you are bleeding after brushing or flossing most likely is due to gingivitis or periodontal disease. Plaque accumulates in areas you can't brush or floss well resulting in irritation to your gums just like a splinter embedded into your skin will do. Gums become"puffy" bleeding easily. Generally with a professional dental cleaning the problem will be corrected with improved home daily hygiene. ...Read more

Hiv eia 17 days (-ve), HIV RNA PCR 33 days (-ve). Hiv chemiluminescence (-ve) after 14 months. After that can spitting blood be caused by hiv?

Not likely: If you are spitting blood something quite serious is going on, but it is not likely due to HIV infection. If you had aids due to HIV (and this would be far too early even if you were infected, which you are not), then some of the opportunistic infections or tumors due to immune suppression might cause hemoptysis (blood in sputum). Go see a doctor. ...Read more

You have to make sure the blood is coming from the digestive system (stomach, esophagus) or is it coming from the respiratory system? Then the cause of the bleeding has to be determined in order to find a treatment. Reflux rarely causes such severe symptoms. ...Read more
