I had a nosebleed today with blood dripping down my throat. I has no outward signs. It stopped bleeding on its own. Is there cause for concern?

Generally No: Nosebleeds are common and have various causes. Determining the cause will help to avoid them in the future. Commonly finger trauma (nose-picking) leads to nasal bleeds; use a tissue when removing debris. When the mucosa is dry it can easily bleed; use a humidifier to avoid this. High blood pressure can rupture small vessels; control your blood pressure. See your doctor if bleeds do not stop. ...Read more

My nose bleeding badly and I have a blood taste in, the back, of my throat. What is wrong and what should I do?

My nose bleeding badly and I have a blood taste in, the back, of my throat. What is wrong and what should I do?

Stop the bleeding: Apply firm pressure by pinching your nose. Sometimes, blood drips down the back of the throat with a nosebleed and causes a metallic taste. Leaning forward slightly while you pinch both sides of your nose firmly just below the bony part for 5-10 minutes should help stop the bleed. If you have unusual bleeding at many body parts, see your doctor. If you bleed more than 20 minutes, see urgent care. ...Read more

Its bleeding from left side of my nose,8-9 drops.it came in my throat secretion as well.now it has stopd.wat shal o do..wat posture to rest.

Nose bleed: If this is a one time nose bleed for you, you likely do not have to do anything now that it has stopped.

An upright posture will provide the least pressure to the vessels and minimize risk of recurrence. ...Read more

Hey There,

How dangerous is unilateral nasal polyp without bleeding? I  have white thick mucus from my nose and throat. No blood. I'm 31yr old male never smoked.

Nasal polyps: Most polyps are benign. However, you do need to see an ENT doctor who can examine you with a fiberoptic scope and set up CT imaging to evaluate the extent of the polyps. There is often more than one. You likely need surgery to remove the polyps to biopsy them and help improve symptoms. Polyps usually contribute to congestion, loss of smell, and sinusitis. ...Read more

No gum disease but gums bled frequently w/o brushing. Given Clindamycin for strept throat and bleeding stopped. Why?

Gingivitis: Bleeding gums can be a sign that you are at risk for, or already have, gum disease. The bacteria, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless toxic “plaque” on teeth causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed. This is a serious problem, which should be checked by a dentist. The good news is that this condition is curable. Call your dentist today! ...Read more

9 yr old daughter severe nose bleeding since night before last...15 total as of now..She wakes up with blood going down her throat...Bleeding out of both sides.?

Needs Evaluation: Nose bleeds in kids are commonly triggered by allergic irritation & minor trauma in the sensitive area of the nasal membranes. This can be frequent & recurrent. The number & frequency you report would make me wonder about a clotting issue. Nsaid pain meds can interfere with clotting or there are some unusual disturbances involving platelets. Id see your dr & have this looked into. ...Read more

I have a what could be best described by me as a long bleeding sore hanging from my throat nera my tonsil it doesn't hurt but its odd looking and it feels like I have a piece of plastic stuck on my throat when i swallow. Is this an emergency?

I have a what could be best described by me as a long bleeding sore hanging from my throat nera my tonsil it doesn't hurt but its odd looking and it feels like I have a piece of plastic stuck on my throat when i swallow. Is this an emergency?

If : If you are having symptoms of soreness, and have noticed blood in your sputum, this should be evaluated in a timely, not necessarily, urgent manner. My level of concern would be heightened if you also had a significant smoking and/or drinking history. The " odd look" also has me concerned. I would have an ENT in your area check this out, and if it looks suspicious, I am sure he will biopsy it. ...Read more
