Thanks for writing to us.

Blood in saliva occur either due to throat infection or due to gingivitis as a result of plaque accumulation.

I would advice you to get a thorough scaling done.

Brush and floss your teeth as well as tongue daily.

Use c hl or hex i d i n e mouth rinses to gargle.

Also get THOROUGH evaluation by an E N T Specialist.

Hope this helps.
