Cough: Your cough is due to a post nasal drip. The mucus is eroding the little blood vessels in your nose causing the mucus to become blood tinged. Use salt water nose drops sprayed into your nose 4 times a day. Us a vaporizer when sleeping. Rub vapo rub on your chest to help your cough.

Dental abscess: Dental infection due to tooth abscess, gum abscess or combination of both. It is a treatable condition. See your dentist for evaluation, x-rays and treatment. You are always presented with a few options for treatment. Good luck.

I've had a funky cold (see previous question)and in the morning the roof of my mouth is coated in mucus--some of it is dried. I wiped some out with some toilet paper, and it came back with blood on it.

Sorry: Questions are not linked. If your nose is really dry it can cause some blood. It could drip down into your throat. Also wiping the top of your roof of your mouth can cause disruption of the tissue and a bit of blood too. I would not worry too much about a little dried blood!

See your doctor: These symptoms may be from sinus infection or inflammation. Other nasal symptoms such as congestion, and diminished ability to smell can be a part of the sinusitis picture. Drinking plenty of water and using nasal saline spray can help. If your symptoms have been present for more than two weeks you should see your doctor.

Why do I have green to brown coating on my tongue and roof of my mouth every morning? It tastes bad. I'm very thirsty. I have blood speckled mucus.

Why do I have green to brown coating on my tongue and roof of my mouth every morning? It tastes bad. I'm very thirsty. I have blood speckled mucus.

Morning breath: If you're thirsty when you wake up - you're undoubtedly dehydrated (which happens normally after not drinking for 8 hrs or so) - perhaps you're a little 'drier' than you should be? And, you're likely mouth breathing so the natural, germ fighting saliva dries out. Perhaps too medicines have an effect like antihistamines for allergy. Smoking of course wouldn't help and some foods can lead to odors.

I am experiencing thick saliva or mucus in the back of my mouth where the wall of the throat is. It's been going on for 2 months, no coughing, no colds, just yellow mucus which could possibly the reason why I have yellow snot (not wet) in my nose.

Allergies.: That sounds like allergies. Nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, post-nasal drop, headache, facial pains and earache can be triggered by fragrances, dust mites (sweeping the floor), grass, trees, pets, environmental molds and such. There are outdoor and indoor allergens. See a doctor soon, here or locally, as there are medications that may help.

Why is the roof of my mouth yellow? Not like thrush, but tinted yellow. I also have a very sore red throat with mucus. Does this just sound viral?

Slight jaundice: You may be suffering from epstein-barr virus or 'mono' which can make you slightly yellow, with throat symptoms as you describe. Everyone's a little different, so the best thing to do is see a doctor for proper evaluation. Jaundice or that yellow color, can be seen inside the mouth, plus also the whites of the eyes if you pull the skin to the side (carefully). Hope you feel better soon!

Recurring canker sores on inside of lips and tongue. Tongue feels raw and my mucous and saliva feels acidic. The inside of my mouth visibly looks good. Any ideas what this could be? HIV negative and recent CBC bloodwork came back normal.

Check for reflux: If your dental health is otherwise good, I would consider acid reflux as a potential cause. However one need to rule a candida infection as well and this would require an immune evaluation in the absence of diabetes. Talk to your doctor.

Tonsil stones: Tonsil "crypts" hold accumulation of food, bacteria and sloughed off cells that form soft "stones" which eventually pop out. They increase with allergies and throat infections, are annoying, occasionally cause pain, rarely cause infection. Treatment is tonsillectomy which would only be used if there are other related problems. You may remove them gently with a tooth brush or clean fingernail.

Mucus Balls: These mucus balls are most likely thickened, dry mucus coming from your nose, down the back of your nose into your mouth. This time of the year, when our furnace is running, the air we breathe is very dry. Trying using saline nasal spray, like neilmed or simply saline, 4 - 6 times / day to moisten your mucus. Long, hot showers and a mist humidifier would also help. Not better? Go see your doctor.
