A little blood on the phlegm can arise due to a long cough or cough too hard. If a lot of fresh blood comes out when coughing or mixed with phlegm can be caused by some of the following:
Lung infections: pulmonary tuberculosis, pneumonia, bronchiectasis

Handling given depends on the cause found during the examination.

There are still many other causes that can cause similar complaints. We recommend that you see a doctor if after 3 days the complaint does not decrease. Get plenty of rest, avoid smoking or cigarette smoke. Eat high nutritious food and drink more water. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
