    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.

    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.
