According to the major symptom you describe, (spitting blood from throat), there might be several possible causes. The source of the blood may be in the nose, lungs, throat itself, or esophagus and stomach. It may be due to minor ulcers, but other more severe conditions might be causing the symptom. Even cancer in one of these locations is not excluded. Therefore, you have to see a doctor as soon as possible: ENT specialist or internist. If no wound is found, then dry air might be drying the throat mucus, thus irritating it and making it more susceptible to minor wounds.
