Blood in mucus after cold

Common Questions and Answers about Blood in mucus after cold

blood

Bloody nasal mucus, with an upper respiratory infection, is not uncommon. If this is just a cold, it should subside shortly and, with it, the blood in your mucus. If blood, in any form persists after the cold symptoms are gone but not before, you should have your nose examined.
I have had a cold for about a week and for about 5 days I have lost all sense of taste and smell and in the last 3 days I have had quite a bit of blood in my mucus. I just want to know if there is anything simple I should do about this and if there is anything that can be done to regain my sense of taste any faster??
I don't have a temp anymore, just a running nose, coughing up mucus and blood from the nosebleeds. I also get sharp pains in my throat after swollowing.
Just over Three weeks ago I came down with a really sore throat, and darkish green nasal discharge along with it and for two mornings there was blood in it when I blew my nose... A week after my sore throat started, a common cold finally hit me.. Three days into my cold, I started feeling really exhausted, and its hard for me to describe, or put my finger on exactly what im feeling.. but it was a mix between fatigue, light headedness, dazed, lack of concentration, slight loss of balance..
Anyway, this was accompanied by a fever ranging from 99-102, usually the low end was after taking some tylenol or ibuprofein, and extreme hot and cold flashes (well extreme for me). At times I'd be shaking and freezing under a few comforters and a temp of about 80 in my apartment. At other times, mainly night, I would sweat like crazy, usually waking up soaked.
This past weekend when I spit out my mucus there's dime sized blood in it. Mucus is light brown caramel color. This morning I blew my nose and found blood in that as well.
i have mucus coming into my throat almost daily but without blood. i have never found blood streaks in mucus before this. last month i had an x-ray of my sinuses and a head CT done which were perfectly normal. i did have a headache two days back which stayed for 24 hours but resolved after taking medicines. i am very scared. PLS HELP. WAITING EAGERLY FOR UR REPLY.
Many of things cause blood in stools, stomach ulcers, liver cirrhosis, GERD-Gastrorelux disease and more. The next step would be an endoscopy. You might want to go on a candida diet. I recommend that if the GI doctor doesn't help you to find a good doctor. Call the Great Smokies Diagnostic Lab and ask them for a good GI doctor in your area. Their web-site is www.gsdl.com. They do very specific testing there that is not done at other labs. I got my daughter diagnosed this way.
for the past 5 days i have the cold but its been 3 days now i have been seeing blood streaks in the mucus when i blow y nose. but now the blood presence in the mucus is increasing. i am o antibiotics already. can you help me???
I was on 30 GEN-Amoxicillin (500mg)for 10 days and where the blood ceased. Once I finished the medication the blood in the mucus returned. My mouth every morning is dry and when I clear my throat the mucus comes up followed by blood. Now is January caught a cold, same pattern mucus & blood the only thing different today rather this evening is I brought up mucus followed by blood, the reason I say different is because the blood would only occur in the morning.
Since then, I have been noticing a lot of white/clear mucus in my stool. When I wipe, the only thing I can see in the toilet paper is white mucus. I don’t feel particularly ill or anything, but this has been happening everyday for more than a week or two. What could this be a sign of? Note: Four members of my family (we are six) have had gastritis and ulcers. Could this be a probability?
well now im gonna move towards a bacterial infection of some sort, salmonella, C-diff(clostridium difficile), or E.Coli... however there are other causes of this...what color of the mucus? it could be IBS or some sort of IBD(crohns ulceratice colitis)... another possibility is diverticulitis(an infection of the diverticula of the intestines) if i would you i would see a doctor to ensure nothing serious is going on.... how often does the mucus appear...on every BM? any blood in stool?
Can you experience a mucus plug if you ARE pregnant in your first trimester?
I do nasal rinses and have try to eliminate as many allergens as possible. I have no fragrance in my house, clean often etc........ I live in Minnesota and we have yet to get to the "spring time" allergies. Luckily I'm not allergic to mold so the wet ground after the snow melting doesn't bother me. I've continued to be stuffed up and have sinus pressure. I also have big clots of blood that come out of my nose when I blow it. I'm used to a little blood, but this is a lot.
He says he spit three times and all three had blood. Then stopped after 3 spits. He tried to cough and see if he would get blood in his mucus and he didn't. He is not the type that complains but he made this comment about his spit and it got me worried. He doesn't cough blood in the morning anymore is what I'm assuming as he wasn't using the oxygen for the past few months and he recenlty started using it after they added a bottle water to the machine. Any idea what it could be? Please help.
Most virus infections resolve in a week or so, the flu somewhat longer. If you continue to raise blood from your nose or throat, after the cold/flu symptoms have resolved, you should see a doctor to be examined.
Have given up all caffeine in drinks and food. Am using a nasal spray and Ayers ointment to line my nose. After I eat or drink the mucus is more. I am taking allegra once a day but it does not help. I have given up all dairy and trying to cut down on sugar. I have an internist who has not solved this problem. Is there a specialist I should be seeing? This is disgusting and I need to find an answer to this problem.
I quit social smoking about a year and a 1/2 ago except for one night in Dec. About a month ago I noticed some blood in my phlegm so I went to the Dr. and I was put on an antibiotic and was sent for a chest x-ray, the x-ray was normal. Now I am spitting all the time, my lungs hurt I am spitting so much to examine my phlegm. I have noticed when I get out of the shower there are a few black/dark gray specks in my spit. I am so scared that something is wrong w/me!

Try some muscinex , once you get all the mucus out your cold should go away. Having a cold is one way your body is trying to get rid of the mucus.
I smoke on and off still but last night after smoking 3 cigs i spat in my sink to examine it (a practice i started doing after the cough), and notice a small amount of blood in my mucas. After i took a shower i spat in my sink again but there was still blood in my spit but no cough. Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be?

I occasionally pass blood and/or mucus in my stools - the mucus is usually either a dark or pinkish color, I don't have any pain. I'm very worried about what this could be, I have tests at the hospital but they couldn't find anything (I think a sigmodoscopy??) and my family don't have any history of anything like this.
if the blood is in your throat, it can be that at night as you're lying flat on your back the mucous is pooling in your throat. Maybe the blood is coming from your throat? You know, before I had my sinus surgery, I had a lot of mucous coming out of my nose and going down the back of my throat. The infected mucous irritated my throat so bad, that my adenoids were quite swollen. The ENT thought at first that was where the problem lies, and booked me in for surgery to get theme removed.
But now I have it during the day, not all the time though, it is very sporadic, it's a sudden rush of blood in the mouth and when I spit there's traces of blood in the saliva. Good luck with your ENT, let us know how it goes. I haven't seen a doctor yet, I've been having this problem over a year now. Eventually, I will see one.
I'll first post my symptoms --------------------------------------------- - Tons of Mucus when I wake up and throughout the day - I wake up lie in bed I'm fine, it's not until I stand up I feel like something adjusts in my head (mucus) and there's pressure in the top of my head and middle, not a headache though. Feel a bit dizzy and my ears kind of need popping. 20-30 minutes after standing pressure relieves a bit along with dizziness.
