Today morning when I got up I had hard bloody phlegm in my nose. It was hard and dry. and then when I was clearing my throat I found dark red blood in my sputum.

Can I know why did this happen.

any information on this is appreciated.

Thanks.

Some blood settled in your nose and coagulated, some was swallowed and came back with the phlegm. You could ask why your nose bled. If it happens again it could be a blood pressure problem.
