In cold, dry winters, nasal mucosa gets congested. If you have a deviated nasal septum, the capillary vessels over the edge of spur could rupture occasionally resulting in blood streaked sputum. Consult an ENT Specialist near you. If you are near Basaveshwaranagar, you could drop in to my clinic to further manage your condition.
