When I Clear My Throat Blood
Bronchitis: You either have bronchitis or pneumonia, which is a radiologic diagnosis. Either way you have a bacterial bronchial infection, and with brown sputum, my recommendation would be definitely to treat with a prescription antibiotic. Some physicians may prefer to due a sputum culture prior to initiation of therapy. You need to see a physician, and of course consider smoking cessation if you do. ...Read more

Infection: The sudden onset of your symptoms is consistent with an upper respiratory infection. This may be viral or bacterial. You can take decongestants or a sinus rinse for symptomatic relief. If you have worsening symptoms, high fever, or shortness of breath you should see your doctor immediately. You should also see your doctor if your symptoms persist. ...Read more
I have blood in my mucous when i blow my nose and when i "sucked" the postnasal drip from my throat it was bloody. Is this normal?
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
See a doctor ASAP: This is grossly abnormal and needs thorough investigation. Go and see your PCP and if they cannot get to the root of this they may refer you to an ENT specialist. Good luck. ...Read more

I have really bad cough, my lungs hurt sometimes when I cough alot. Also I taste blood in my throat when I cough alot. ?
Irritation: A persistent cough can strain your intercostal muscles, giving you the sense that your lungs hurt, and can irritate your upper airway giving you a bloody taste in your throat. However, if you develop shortness of breath, wheezing, fevers or worsening cough, seek medical attention to rule out pneumonia or other infection. Take Care! ...Read more
My throat hurts and ears. I have phlegm and when i coughed little blood was in it. Is this serious? Happened inthe morning also yellow mucus in nose.
See below: Yellow or green mucous is not concerning. If there was only a bit of blood streaking, the source was probably a slight bleed in the nose mucosa. If it continues, get seen, otherwise, using otc meds can help. ...Read more

I have a sore throat, swollen glands, my ears hurt when I swallow and i am bringing up red/brown phlegm. What could it be?
Pneumonia?: This sounds like a standard respiratory viral infection that might have progressed to bronchitis or pneumonia. "Red/brown" suggest your sputum (phlegm from the bronchi or lungs) contains blood. See a doctor to be checked for bronchitis or pneumonia and possible need for an antibiotic prescription. Do it immediately if you have fever, chest pain of shortness of breath, or cough up obvious blood. ...Read more
Almost 2 weeks with cold and i now have bright yellow mucus that I am coughing up and when i blow my nose ...What is going on?
Probably Sinusitis: The swelling inside the nose from the cold has likely swelled the sinus openings closed, causing a sinus infection. While it will likely go away on it's own (if you wait long enough), antibiotics will make this go away much more quickly. ...Read more
