Dear Patricia

The blood from the nose is most likely running down the back of her throat and therefore it seems to be coming out of her mouth. I would suggest that she sees an ENT surgeon to establish a cause for the bleeds, as controlling this may be very simple. An examination of the nasal cavity will be performed and if a cause is found, it can be dealt with appropriately.
