Customer Question

My 44 ur old husband who does not take any medications nor has any prior medical issues has recently been spitting up little sprinkle sized semi solid pustules from his mouth and sometimes when he sweats excessively from his pores. What could be causing this?

Thank you for your question.

This could be an indication of an infection.

Has he been seen for this?

I would recommend that he be seen as he will likely require a course of an antibiotic if an infection is proven.

No he hasn't been seen. What type of infection is common with theses symptoms?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 months ago.

This could be a respiratory infection.

I would like that he should have a chest x-ray, complete blood count among other tests to confirm the diagnosis and then proceed accordingly.
