Coughing mucus with brown spots

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing mucus with brown spots


Avatar f tn I can deal with the wheezing, but 3 times now over the past 2 months I’ve started coughing hard and pulled up a thick, brown worm/slug like hard mucus that’s about 1.5 inches long and fairly thick. Directly after, I end up coughing up a small amount of orangish “regular” mucus. Otherwise, I haven’t coughed anything else up at all. Anyone know what this is? I can’t find anything online.
Avatar f tn Brown Phlem is a sign of an infection with blood. Instead of green it turns brown because of the blood. I think you should go to the doctor and make sure you don't have something serious going on like walking pneumonia or a sinus infection.

Avatar f tn If its a thick brown discharge it might be bits of your mucus plug! If you google images of mucus plug youll get a better idea of what it looks like!
Avatar f tn Im 38 weeks and 5 days and like 2 weeks ago I started spotting light brown spots like on my under ware then this week it turned into a little Dark brown spotting but gluie it's not a lpt just spotting but gluie kinda Idk if it's the mucus plug it's coming down little by little or if it's something else anyone knows????
Avatar m tn Then about a couple of days ago, I had that tickle cough, but like a coughing attack episode. And It would be extreme thick clear sticky mucus, to the point of throwing up. The sore throat is on and off, but I think the slight pain in throat is from hacking up, so its inflamed, and so forth.
1736781 tn?1310591500 In 2007 I noticed brown spots on the bottom of my left foot, a raised brown lesion on the top of my right toe, brown spots on the inside of my hand and underneath my arms. I'm beyond terrified, because the lesions resemble those of (AIDS Related) kaposi's sarcoma. I've read on the net that ks usually appears after hiv has substantially weakend your immune system. Is it possible to have ks, or AIDS two years after possible exposure?
Avatar n tn i can taste infection when i swallow and i keep coughing up mucus that has blood in it, what does blood in my mucus mean?
Avatar f tn Uhmmm....GROSS. Anyway, coughing up brown mucus can actually be caused by old blood or dried blood, which can change in color due to a hemoglobin loss. The brown phlegm takes on this characteristic color due to these changes in hue once blood has dried out or gotten old. Most of the time, when blood is present in the mucus, it will present itself as such or as brown phlegm. However sometimes, the presence of blood in mucus can result in a black appearance as well.
Avatar f tn Hi I've got a bout of flu and last night had several coughing fits (with mucus discharge). At some point it may have become blood stained but I didn't notice until this morning when I coughed hard and ejected reddish brown phlegm, about one inch in size. I thought it could be due to coughing too hard but I'm worried it may be something serious. Can someone help please?
Avatar n tn well, she is only 10W along, it won't be her mucus plug, also mucus plug is a discharge with a blood spots in it...but slight spottings are normal, especially she is in her first trimester, please don't stress yourself out you are gonna go to a doc tomorrow anyway.

Avatar m tn there was even one instance where before i even coughed, upon spitting, the spit already seemed to be clear with a slight brown tint, and upon coughing seemed clear. but the metallic taste sort of lingers. this is a recurring peculiarity for me since If it really was from my lungs wouldn't the consistency get even more thick the more i coughed? I've also just noticed odd bumps ish near the back of my throat or above the tonsil near the uvula? that weren't there before.
Avatar n tn I have been coughing up phlegm that is mostly white/clear with small amounts of a yellowish color and small brown flecks. When I lay down I can hear myself breathing/wheezing and makes it impossible to sleep, not to mention coughing fits making my partner unable to sleep. I have been taking antihistamines before bed and it seems to help calm my cough. I have a rather difficult anxiety problem when it comes to doctors so I try to home remedy what I can and only see drs if totally necessarry.
Avatar f tn It started with a tickling throat and then developed, so I find it very hard to swallow because it really hurts, and also have trouble talking. Yesterday I started coughing and it has gotten really bad, to the point where I am coughing until I'm gagging. However, the unusual thing is it only seriously affects me in the mornings and at night. During the day it is bearable. Please help!!
Avatar m tn As soon as I lay down it crackles and wheezes so loudly that it keeps my wife awake and i try to get a bit of sleep sitting upright which lessens the coughing. This started like a head cold and still behaves like it with lots of mucus from my sinuses, balance problems and ear pressure. Some mucus comes up when I cough but not as much as there was for the first couple of days. Its yellow/brown colour and thick. I get very puffy even walking a short distance and start coughing.
Avatar n tn Barbara533 Have you tried an antihistamine? rushtyyyyy green and yellow flem should not be coming up from allergy unless it is stomach acid. Usually allergy is clear mucus. I'm not a doctor but I wonder if it is a bacteria infection. Sorry I don't know the correct answer. Maybe the doctors are correct too. I just personally haven't heard of colored mucus from allergy. Allergy can cause mucus that can lead to bacteria infection too. See another doctor.
368461 tn?1291515587 The plug may come out all at once in a lump, or as increased vaginal discharge over the course of several days. The mucus may be tinged with blood (which may be brown, pink, or red), in which case it may be referred to as "bloody show." Mine is brown and is coming out with the consistency of the creamy-like discharge. Only started happening after my appt - but will call just to make sure. Thanks ladies...
Avatar f tn I put on a panty liner and didn’t have much of anything after that. Then on Wednesday I had brown mucus when I wiped after using the bathroom. I called my and spoke with a nurse who didn’t seem too concerned, said to keep my first ob appt for that Friday. I went and they ordered the blood panel and urinalysis. My hcg was at 13108. Went back this Monday and did the hcg level again. The midwife called and said everything looks good, and she would see me this Friday for my first early sonogram.
Avatar n tn You probably have or had sinusitis. The infected mucus drains into the throat from your sinuses and makes you cough. Dark green and brown phlegm usually indicates infection, light green means it's getting better.
Avatar f tn Okay thank you ladies . I actually hope it's the "bloody show". I have lost some of my mucus plug already but not a lot so I didn't know if it was the last of it coming out or just from being checked cuz last night I had a little blood mixed with mucus and then again this morning but it's not a lot like little spots of blood and mucus and it was bright red kind of a red/brown color.
Avatar m tn I have had a cough on and off for 2 years now, doctor tested lung function and sputem sample, all clear. I cough up mucus contantly, green, yellow, brown sometimes like spit. When I am run down it is worse and I can have coughing fits for 1-2 hours. This causes a sore throat too. Doctors put it down that I work in the desert but I am sure there is some underlying problems. Any ideas?
Avatar m tn The second day I developed a fever of 102 which lasted for two days. I was coughing up hard green and blood filled mucus in the mornings only for those two days as well. Since day 4 I still have a severe sore throat and am coughing up dark yellow/green phlem in the mornings and have a nagging unproductive cough for the rest of the day. Two days ago I developed a medium sized white sore on the top of my throat (looks similar to a canker sore) and a couple of tiny ones around the edges.
Avatar n tn Guys, I'm 29 weeks tomorrow and I seriously feel like I got hit by a train! I was thinking it was just allergies, but now I'm running a low grade fever. My throat is killing me, my head hurts, and I can't stop coughing (sometimes producing mucus). I have been taking Tylenol cold but it just masks it for 4 hours or so. What else can I do to get better? I have two other children to take care of and my husband is having surgery in two days!
