Hello, I want to ask, so I will continue my studies in Malaysia, here with my friends. Initially there was 1 friend who coughed a long time ago, then I and 1 other friend joined in coughing, maybe also the influence of food here which mostly uses coconut milk. About a week I cough and not get better until my throat hurts. Then one night when I expelled phlegm there was blood mucus. I was googling and that was an indication because of the coughing frequency he said so his throat was chafed. Then my cough healed. But my other friends are still coughing. Until now I sometimes cough, and sometimes I notice the sputum, there are just ordinary white / greenish colors. But recently the sputum is brown. How is that? Are these symptoms of tuberculosis? I am very scared. I want to ask a coughing friend, is there any tuberculosis? I am afraid and uncomfortable. Because he was right here coughing there was also blood mucus out because we kept coughing. Want treatment here is expensive. What can I do? thank you
