I have occasional blood...

I have occasional blood in my mucus in the morning from my sinus I'm sure. Does that indicate an infection?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

No breathing problems - very sporadically for a couple of years. Only when I'm in California

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have allergies to dust - and I was out in the wind yesterday and think that could be the underlying issue. (Allergy related)

Is the blood just from one nostril?

I spit it out when I clear my throat

OK

Then usually that does indicate a sinus infection and not just an allergy condition

Nothing too serious though--I'd suggest for now a saline nasal irrigation system and oral probiotics

But if that doesn't clear it in a week's time you should have your doctor check it out to see if you need a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
