I’ve had a fever for the past few days and a sore throat for 2 days. And on the 3rd day my phlegm bleeds but not too often. What do you think I’m sick about? For the record, I only feel itchy / sore in my throat, my breathing is still normal and also during illness I rarely cough.

Dear Ricky,


Bloody sputum or sputum indicates an injury to a person's airway. When a person coughs and bleeds, this condition is medically known as hemoptysis. Hemoptysis can be caused by a mild to serious medical condition. Some of the conditions that can cause coughing up blood may include:

Lung infections such as tuberculosis
inflammation of the large airways (bronchi) i.e. bronchitis
lung cancer
serious injury
blood thinners side effects
blood from nosebleeds is swallowed around the throat so that the phlegm is mixed with blood, although not entirely from the deeper airways
rupture of varicose veins or swelling of blood vessels around the throat

At a young age, coughing up blood that occurs for a moment, generally does not reflect something serious and requires immediate treatment. Fever and sore throat that you suffer from yourself also require treatment in the form of giving fever medicine which can also reduce sore throat such as paracetamol of course by looking at the instructions for use. Do not forget to consume enough fluids 2-3 liters per day, and give the body a chance to recover by sleeping 7-8 hours per day. If the condition does not improve, do not hesitate to consult a doctor directly. Here we attach an article about coughing up blood. May be useful.
