Blood in mucus

Hello, I got a cold about 3 weeks ago and have continued to have a cough after all this time. This morning i was blowing my nose and out came thick mucus that was bloody ( sorry for the description) I was also coughingat the same time coughed up some thick flem from my throat which was green. Ive pin pointed the blood from my nose. Is this something I should be worried about ? Should I wait to see if it happens again? Does anyone know why this would happen. it has only happened once.

thanks in advance

Re: Blood in mucus

Hi, don't freak about the blood in your nose, it's been assulted in a big way. I just got over the same thing. Since you've had it for 3 weeks and you're still coughing up green stuff, you have a secondary infection and it's probably time for medical intervention.

I couldn't fight mine (sinus/larynx infection) off, although I gave it a mighty good try, my doctor gave me Clavulin. The 2 years before, I was given Zithromax. Both worked well and cleared it up in about 8 - 10 days. I have asthma, and the illness definitely had me needing my rescue inhaler around the every 4 hour mark.

Get well soon,
It's all a matter of perspective!
