Bloody noses are quite common, but may require treatment or at least a visit to the doctor
to make sure that there is nothing more serious that is causing the nosebleeds. This is especially true if they are becoming more frequent, are severe, or are associated with other symptoms. With regards to the coughing up blood (known as hemoptysis to doctors
), it is quite possible that this is some of the blood that has been coming from your nose. In addition to going out the front of your nose, it can go down the back. Eventually, your upper airway will help you to either cough it out or swallow the blood. This is a quite common scenario, and will be experienced by many people. Another possibility is that the blood is coming from somewhere else in your airway. There are many different causes for bleeding
in the airway or upper aerodigestive tract, and some of these are quite serious. It is important for you to both control the nose bleeds and also to find out if there is another cause of bleeding. Please speak with your doctor about your question, and consider a referral to a specialist as needed.
