bloody back drip

So I always try to cough up the back drip because I don't want it going down my throat and swallow it. Last night I did that as always but it was accompanied by quite a bit of blood. At first I thought it was coming from my teeth but I coughed it up again a couple of times and there always was blood. Did that ever happen to anyone? Should I be worried? I don't know if I just over did it with the snuff. 25g usually last a week for me. I'm using only Viking Brown at the moment. Maybe the snuff is a little harsh?


  • Viking drip is very harsh...
  • Well, I almost take nasal tobacco since 20 years now.

    Never had any problems with back drips - and never ever bloody one.

    Mabe you are getting sick? A cold maybe? I made the experience, when a cold is coming and I take nasal tobacco as usual, a tiny bit of bloody forward drip can appear. But that depends on which kind of parts of the system get attacked.

    But with back drip never had any problems.

    It happens to me when I have respiratory infection, once or twice a year. Years ago I stopped using snuff for this reason (suspecting it being a culprit). However, during long break (3-4 years) I came to a conclusion that it's not related to snuff use, and returned to snuff.

    @Carolin4060, well might be that the frequent attempts to hawk up / facilitate expectoration wear down the mucous membrane of the throat and trigger bleeding. Especially under inflammation (in my case).

    I run through 15 g a week as of late.
  • IMO snuff in general helps to prevent from this kind of infection as it uses to keep the nose nicely wet.
  • I've swallowed some pretty harsh back drip over the years, rustica being the worst, and I've never had a hint of any blood. If it continues to happen I'd be inclined to see a doctor, snuff or not.
  • I would agree it sounds like a cold or such, I assume the blood is congealed a bit...with snuff, also hol and such it is very important to listen to one,s body and also as I said I find the Viking drip to be a bit harsh to the extent that it bothers my stomach or bring some on a bit of an acid reflux type reaction.
  • I've never had bloody back drip, but I have terrible back drip all the nose is always runny, even with allergy pills and prescription nasal sprays :(

    The one and only time I had blood come out of my nose was with my first snuff, Kendal Brown Scented. I figure it had something to do with the perfume (scent) used in it, so since then I haven't sought perfumed snuff and I've been fine
