There's blood in my spit. Is this normal or should I be worried?

Where is it from: You should figure out if the blood in your spit is from your mouth including gums, from your upper airway (i.e. Nose) or from your throat or if you are producing sputum from your lungs that has blood in it. If coming from your mouth or nose and you can identify where it is coming from (a sore, dry nose, etc) then you will want to find out how to stop it.

It is not normal: Bleeding in your saliva can be a sign that you already have, gum disease. The bacteria 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 professionally by a dentist. The good news is that this condition is curable. Call your dentist today! ...Read more

Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) my work: I have seen cases where you have to treat with something like Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). It may be that another bacteria in your throat is making a protein that breaks down the Amoxicillin thereby protecting the Strep organism. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) has something in it that stops this breakdown and should treat the Strep. ...Read more

Not cancer.: Not to worry. An isolated streak of blood likely coming from the nose is normal. If it keeps occurring, which is doubtful, then have it checked out. ...Read more
