Wed, Feb 20 5:04pm · Every day I cough up what looks like a scab with ugly mucous and blood in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

I also have the same “scab” which I posted about on this site previously. I discussed with my regular Dr and she gave me an antibiotic, amoxicillin to see I would notice any change. I also started to take Mucinex to thin mucus; I was having a lot of sinus issues and did sinus rinse and then also started Sudafed. Then sore throat and still a lot of mucus/phlegm. Have had all this going on since Jan 11. Back to Dr and they ordered blood work. Now have determined I have mono. Unfortunately I still have coughed up the “scab” but it is not crusty but I can still see the little ‘dent-like hole’ in the middle of it but it is soft. The Dr indicated I would need to see ENT if none the things I have done thus far work. Thanks for all of your info. It is difficult to believe that this “crusty scab” is such a mystery to medical professionals. @beebuzz

This picture is EXACTLY what my mucous scab looks like. I took a pic of mine to show my Dr. thank you so much for sharing your experience. I will be discussing with my Dr soon.

These are my symptoms exactly. I keep looking at conversation on this site but it seems no one is getting relief or a diagnosis from a Dr. that helps with the problem of a scab forming and how difficult it is to deal with this so often (I too have a difficult time coughing up the phlegm/scab at least every other day. Any new info would certainly be appreciated.
