The Cause Of Saliva Mixed With Blood?
Good morning. I want to ask, why it’s been 9 months that every time I sleep I always bleed, even though so far I have never felt anything like that, while I have never felt anything like that, while I have never even been sleeping .. r nBut about 9 months it’s always … there was pain .. 6 years ago, I once bled thick and clotted blood while I was sleeping and immediately woke up and bled out a blood clot. r n r nIs it related to oral disease / other diseases in the body?
Hi Cut Elsa Yusmarliza,
Saliva mixed with blood that occurs during sleep like you experience can indeed be worrying. Given that this condition has been going on for a long time, you should see a doctor so you can find out the cause.
Basically saliva mixed with blood can come from several sources such as:
Bleeding originating from the oral cavity (such as bleeding gums, dental infections, oral cancer)
Bleeding from the nose entering the oral cavity (nosebleeds, nasal polyps)
Problems with the salivary glands (infection, tumor)
Bleeding from the digestive tract (eg sores in the esophagus, stomach ulcers)
Bleeding originating from the respiratory tract (sore throat, respiratory tract infection, tuberculosis)
To ascertain the cause of the complaint you are experiencing, further examination will be required, both a physical examination (including examination of the teeth) and supporting tests such as a CT scan or endoscopy. We recommend that you see a doctor so that they can be examined directly, so that the cause can be ascertained and given the right treatment.
In the meantime, here are some suggestions for you:
Maintain cleanliness of the mouth and teeth
Use a soft toothbrush and avoid brushing your teeth too hard
Increase the consumption of water
Avoid eating foods that are too spicy, acidic, or cause gas
Wear a mask when traveling outdoors
