Tue, Nov 19 12:41am · Every day I cough up what looks like a scab with ugly mucous and blood in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

Yes I actually saw him about it a couple of years ago and they recommended I have my wisdom teeth removed? Not sure what that would have to do with it but I got them removed anyway. I’ve gone back for cleanings and mentioned it, but told me I would need to reach out to a specialist.

Anything new? I still have not figured this out. But it’s getting worse. I use a q tip to scrape the back of my throat multiple times a day. I also use the q tip To try and drag down the green scab from the back of my throat bc it gets hung. I’ve taken a dental mirror and shined a light in the back of my throat with the mirror facing upwards, and it reveals what you cannot see just looking directly at it. There’s tons of green globs in that area above my throat. I’m calling a new ENT tomorrow. From the beginning, I’ve always thought this was staph. I had a breast augmentation done January 2016. Before surgery they informed me I had MRSA? They had to administer antibiotics before my surgery. By chance, do any of you have breast implants? Heard of these side effects with breast implant illness. (BII)

Thank you so much for taking the time to explain things thoroughly. I hope I have found the answer. I will be on the hunt for a new ENT. It may be a few months before you hear back, but I’ll definitely keep you updated. Thanks again! I appreciate it so much!!

This is exactly what mine look like as well. This has been going on for at least 3 years. I have searched and searched and searched online for someone experiencing the same problem as me. I’ve gone to the ENT 4 times. I went last week and was prescribed Biaxin because the chunks that I am coughing up are green. So far it has done nothing. I have to get one of those children’s bulb syringes to extract the thick mucus from the back of my throat sometimes. Also, I purchased a dental mirror not too long ago along with a small pen size flashlight. Point the flashlight towards the back of your throat, while holding the dental mirror up at the top of your throat. What I saw was absolutely disgusting. It was like a giant cavity with a lot of green mucus. I even told my ENT this, and never bothered to scope me or look further in to my problem. I’m attaching some pictures of my “scabs” as well.
