No you dont have mucus in the brain. You have an Upper respiratory tract infection.

You need a course of antibiotics with symptomatic treatment

Hi, Thanks for your query.
You do not have mucous in your brain. You are suffering from upper respiratory tract infection.You may also have sinusitis.
I suggest you visit a physician. You will require decongestants and may be antibiotics.
Have a healthy life !

General & Family Physician Dr. Ashwini Kolur's  Response

I will try my best to answer your query.

It is k/a sinusitis. You don't have mucus in brain but you do have it in sinuses, i.e. air cavities in the cranial bones, especially those near the nose.

Treatment includes steam inhalation, if it is due to allergens, avoidance of the allergens.
Saline nasal irrigation, decongestants, antihistamines, and expectorants are appropriate for symptomatic relief.
Antibiotic will be helpful.
I advice you to meet ENT specialist who will examine and prescribe you the right medicine.

Hope my answer will be helpful for you.

Take care.

Please advise, last week I had a car accident and was thrown into the boot of the car. I rolled a Landrover 360 degrees. I was not knocked unconcious, but did get a big bang to my right eye,from my right knee... I was travelling at 70kms.I immediately got a nose bleed, but the bleed was short. I have a black eye and have suffered head pains on the right side.. my ear was a little sore and still is.. but what concerns me is that i am still getting blood in my mucus from nose, as this injury is now a week old. I have not exerted myself massively in terms of movement since then but get alot of pressure when I bend down and the occassional dizzy spell. Do you think its possible this is a brain bleed? Thank you for your time.

I have had a cold or the flu for 3 days, no coughing really just a really sore throat. Not runny nose, more like stopped up mucus. Along with the headache and everything hurts feeling. I finally got the mucus unclogged from the back of my throat today and what I spit out was like a bloody brain. It was pretty gross and now my throat feels a little odd. Should I be worried?

I am a 53 year old female, 5 ft 3 ins and 13stone 8lbs. about 7 years ago I had a bad chest infection which I didn t take medication for as it happened over the Xmas holidays. Since then, whenever I get a virus or a cold the right side of my throat and chest feels heavy and I get a cough which takes a while to go away. Is this normal?

I am 38 year old female. 5 foot tall, 60 kg and relatively healthy. I have been prescribed antibiotics for sinus infection 2 months ago with not much relief have had 4 courses. In past 3 days have developed trimenigal neuralgia and was sent for CT. CT retured with polypodial mucosal thickening involving maxillary antra bilaterally including 3 cm polp in left antrum and 2 cm polyp in right antrum. Left polyp extending into and occluding the ostium antrum. There is also marked narrowing of the nasal cavity bilaterally. There is a small concha bullosa of the left middle turbinate. The post nasal space is clear . I am off to GP this afternoon and am worried and just wanted to know could this be the reason for TN? Thanks
