Hello Bayu, Thank you for the question.
Symptoms of a bloody cough need to be watched out for, especially if they occur repeatedly, with large amounts of blood, causing shortness of breath or palpitations. Coughing up blood can be caused by the following conditions:
a cough that is too strong, causing irritation of the walls of the respiratory tract
Bleeding from the nose can be associated with coughing up this blood. When you cough, blood can go up into the nasal cavity and out of the nose. In addition, bleeding from the nose can be caused by nosebleeds (epistaxis). There are several small blood vessels near the surface of the nasal wall so that an injury or inflammation of the nose can cause these blood vessels to be easily damaged. Some of the causes of nosebleeds include cold and dry air, rhinitis, sinusitis, injury to the nose, picking your nose or blowing your nose too hard, blood clotting disorders, and others.
You should immediately check with your doctor first before symptoms worsen. The doctor needs to examine you, and perform other supporting tests such as blood tests, sputum tests, X-rays, CT scans. From this examination the doctor will find out the cause and determine the right treatment for you. You need to know the exact cause first because the treatment for each health condition is different.
Please do the following suggestions:
avoid throwing phlegm carelessly
always cover your mouth when you cough to prevent transmission
If a nosebleed occurs, sit up straight with your body leaning forward, squeezing your nose with your forefinger and thumb for 10 minutes. Put ice on the nose too.
