Black stuff in mucus when nose is blown
My daughter has had this cough for about a week now and feel draining in her throat. She is on medication Aeroflux, antibiotic and Nasonex. She was getting better but the rain fell yesterday and the cough is now back and this morning when she blew her nose there was black stuff in the mucus that came out. What could this be as i am scared that it may be blood?

Hi,

Black or dark colored mucus may indicate blood or in some cases fungal infection. Since your daughter has a short history of symptoms, it is likely that this may be clotted blood which bled earlier and has been dislodged by the excess mucus.

In case the child is already under treatment, you  may go back to the same doctor and he can do an inspection to find out the bleeding point if present.

However, in the other case you may get this inspected by your GP. It is usually not a serious matter to have bled a bit, however, it is not be ignored.

Hope this helped.
