Coughing with blood can be caused by:
sores on the lining of the throat, for example from a prolonged severe cough, or sore throat
lung infections, such as tuberculosis
blood thinners side effects
If the chest is only lightly hit, it usually only causes bruising on the chest. It is necessary to be more careful if the chest experiences a hard impact to injure the lungs, for example in a traffic accident, and then experiences chest pain or shortness of breath, because it can cause a pneumothorax condition.
Try to do the following:
drink more water
better not talk for a long time or shout
do not smoke
eat nutritious food regularly
reduce consumption of fatty foods, or those processed by frying
have enough rest
