Sinus Infection? / Sore Throat
3 days ago before i went to sleep i noticed a cough developing and tingling in my throat. I woke up the next morning to a terrible sore throat. I assumed it was a sinus infection and managed to get through the day. I took some nyquil to get to sleep and help coat my throat. I wokeup the next day and the sore throat seemed a lot better than the first day, but still sore. Also I noticed at the beginning of this day my phlegm started to turn green and even a dark red later that day! The color was real dark So im assuming it was blood although I dont recall tasting blood in my mouth and sometimes when i throw up from brushing my teeth I start spitting up SMALLER amounts of blood after and recall tasting it coming up.

Is the red color caused by infection or is it definitely blood and should I be concerned? Im assuming the sore throat will be gone in 2-3 more days if i let it run its course.

Re: Sinus Infection? / Sore Throat
At this point you should not be doctor says to let things run their course, for 10 to 14 days...not many will give you antibiotics until then.
