Dry And Bloody Cough.?
Hello, I’m 20 years old. I want to ask the doctor about my cough problem. I was afraid that if the disease was severe, I would normally be in good health. I have not coughed for 1 week, only coughed after a fever. My cough is dry and if I spit it will come out blood stains but other organs don’t feel pain. And I have fever chills for 1 day and often sweating too much. What is that sign?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Coughing up blood or hemoptysis is an expectoration of blood from the airways, it can be from the nose, throat, bronchi, or lungs. In adults 70-90% of cases of hemoptysis are caused by:
1. Bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi)
2. Bronchiectasis (widening of the lower airway)
3. Pneumonia (infection of the lung parenchyma)
4. Tuberculosis (TB infection in the lungs)
5. Lung cancer (in smokers aged> 40 years)
6. Pulmonary embolism
7. Lung foreign body
8. A hard cough
Apart from exploring more detailed symptoms and physical examination of the lungs, additional examinations are also needed to help establish the diagnosis. One of the tests that might be done is sputum examination, regional examination, imaging, which is chest x-ray, bronchoscopy or CT scan.
Do further consultation with a doctor if you experience the following complaints:
1. Blood is more dominant than phlegm or phlegm
2. Shortness of breath
3. Night sweats
4. Fast heartbeat
5. Weight loss is not clear why
6. Chest pain
7. CHAPTER blood or reddish urine
Specific treatment for this condition will depend on the underlying medical condition from the previous examination. In some cases treatment aims to treat inflammation and also to relieve symptoms. While that can be done at this time for. Preventing worsening of symptoms is to consume more water, not smoking and inhaling cigarette smoke, and to improve cleanliness in the room so as not to further aggravate inflammation in the airways.
That's all, hope you can help
