Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Cough that occurs for a long time, can occur due to several possibilities, including:

Tuberculosis or TB Chronic bronchitis or inflammation of the bronchial structures COPD or chronic obstruction of the lung disease

In your case, what you really need to worry about is the possibility of tuberculosis because of the old cough, fever, coughing up blood and weight loss which are some of the typical symptoms of tuberculosis. Apart from that, among the odd things on your previous examination was that you were declared infected with the virus but were given antibiotics. This should not be done because antibiotics cannot kill the virus and should not even be given if there is no bacterial infection because they can create bacterial resistance to the drug.

Our advice is to consult a pulmonary specialist for further tests. Your pulmonologist will likely ask you to do a sputum test and a chest X-ray to rule out tuberculosis. The treatment you will receive will depend on the results of these tests.

Meanwhile, avoid expelling phlegm and spitting carelessly, avoid cigarette smoke, dust and pollution, wear a mask, improve circulation in your home by opening windows and letting sunlight in, and avoiding someone who is coughing for a long time around you. Increase the consumption of warm water, or warm tea with a mixture of lemon / honey, and immediately consult a pulmonologist. Get well soon.

That's all, hope it helps.
