Detailed Answer:
HI

Greetings from Dr.Divakara.P
Thanks for posting your query.

First of all relax . It is not a major problem .

It can happen due to trauma to your throat while cleaning or Throat infection or ulcer in the throat or problems in upper part of nose or problems in gums.

I need more information to make a better diagnosis.

1. Was this a one time event or is it recurring ?
2. Is there any active bleeding now?
3. Do you have any pain or soreness in throat?
4. Do you have any pain or difficulty in swallowing ?
5. Do you have any cough?
6. Any bleeding from Nose?

Kindly revert back with the details asked.

Will be looking forward for your reply.

Brief Answer:
It could be Throat Infection.

Detailed Answer:
HI XXXXXXX .

Thanks for the reply.

It seems like either Throat Infection or trauma to throat. I would recommend you do salt water gargling 3-4 times a day , eat soft food and avoid spicy food .

This much is enough , if the soreness persists then you may have to start an Antibiotic for that but I think you can wait for 2 days and observe . But if the bleeding occurs again by itself then you may have to get Throat examination done by a doctor.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarification feel free to ask .
