Customer Question

Hello...I cleared my throat earlier, the sputum was clear and and more than I usually have, with just a tiny bit of pink blood, should I be concerned? I don't spit up sputum too often, it happened right after I got out of a hot shower.

This is Dr. David

spring allergies can cause more mucus in your throat from post nasal drip.

it is very common to have a bit of blood in mucus when you clear your throat.

this can be from your sinuses most likely.

dry air can cause bleeding.
