Mar 8, 2018 · Every day I cough up what looks like a scab with ugly mucous and blood in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

As you know from my previous post, I have had this same problem. One time, the doctor pulled it out but, as you say, thought nothing of it. It may be partly attributable to GERD but I feel there is a spot somewhere in there where mucous collects and doesn’t drain properly. After the mucous gets stuck there for a while it forms a scab and becomes infected. If I don’t “hack it up” regularly, it really becomes infected and I have to take an antibiotic. I know this sounds gross, but hacking it up sometimes is really difficult. Wish I could find a doctor that could/would fix this. Had an MRI of my sinuses but they could not find anything – I think that is because it is just a little “dent” or “ledge” back there that collects mucous and doesn’t drain and they cannot see it in an MRI. Let us know how you are doing with this. Good luck!

Well, I spoke too soon about the scab inside my nose getting better. It has started up again to my dismay. I cannot figure out why it happens at the same place in my nose all the time. I will continue to search for answers as it is very discouraging that no one can figure out why this happens. I will read about staph and see if it leads me in the right direction. Stay well and thanks for your comments.

Do not know why but mine has gotten better. I still feel as though one tries to form but I now can hack up the piece of mucous before it gets really bad. My doctor put me on Singular to take every day so that may be what has helped. I will let you know how it goes.

I am not sadiegirl. I inquired about shoulder replacement – not knee replacement. Do not know how this happened.

Katherine: Thank you so much for your reply. As you know from your experience, this is driving my husband and I crazy. Thanks to your advice, we are a bit more relaxed about this issue and feel we can, with the help of good doctors, figure out what to do. Hugs to you too!

My husband has been to doctors for years with similar problem with bladder. Apparently his symptoms are worse at night – the prostate swells and he feels the need to urinate frequently during the night but cannot urinate unless he walks around for a while or sits down to pee. I feel this is what causes him to be lethargic during the day – because of lacking a good night’s sleep. His bladder seems to function better during the day. His current doctor wants to perform TURP surgery. He is unsure what he should do at this point. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi rebecccamcroberts. No fever or shortness of breath. It has been going on for over 6 months. I have gone to several ENT doctors and to walk-in clinics. No one seems to be able to offer me a cause or solution. I have taken antibiotics, used nasal wash, Mucinex, etc. I need to find a doctor who can examine me and find out why this is happening.
