Thank you for the question.
Coughing usually occurs due to disorders of the respiratory system, such as allergies, irritation, infection, aspiration of foreign bodies, even a malignancy. Cough can also occur due to disorders of other organ systems, for example in patients with acid reflux, congestive heart failure, immune disorders, side effects of certain drug consumption, and so on.
A cough accompanied by blood does not always refer to a dangerous condition. Blood that comes out when coughing can be solely caused by a cough process that is too hard to break the blood vessels around the throat. But indeed, in some cases, bloody coughs can also indicate a more serious condition, such as pulmonary tuberculosis, chronic bronchitis, lung cancer, gastric acid reflux, pneumonia, throat cancer, and so on.
If it's true that only 3-4 days your complaint lasts, and no other severe complaints appear, such as tightness, chest pain, vomiting, fever, and so on, you can first do the following steps to improve your complaint:
Drink warm water, and eat more broth food
Don't consume cold food and drinks, make sweet, greasy, and take it away
Not talking, especially screaming excessively
Don't get used to smoking and breathing through your mouth
Regularly exercise every day and rest regularly so that the body's immune system remains excellent
Avoid all substances that might make your airway become inflamed due to allergies or irritants, such as cold, smoke, pollution, dust, etc.
Use a mask
Do not take any medicine before prescribed by a doctor
If the cough does not heal despite the above efforts, do not hesitate to do a direct examination to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine, yes. Blood tests, sputum, x-rays, and other supporting tests may be a doctor will do so that your condition is well identified cause and given the right treatment.
Hope this helps ...
