Good morning doctor,

1 Answer:

Hello I Nengah Wirawan, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


A cough accompanied by fresh blood can be caused by several possible conditions such as:

Pulmonary tuberculosis
Chronic bronchitis
Pneumonia
Lung cancer
Wounds accompanied by bleeding in the upper airway
Upper gastrointestinal bleeding

Although complaints of coughing up only occur once, it is advisable to check the complaint immediately to the doctor for further evaluation. The doctor may suggest that your wife perform a supporting examination such as chest x-ray, sputum examination, blood examination or other tests in accordance with the doctor's consideration to determine the main cause of the complaint, and after that, the therapy will be more adjusted and your wife may be referred to certain specialist doctors if indeed require more specialized therapy.


In the meantime, besides going to the doctor, your wife is allowed to take cough relievers that are sold freely in the market according to the dosage on the package until there is further recommendation from the doctor, but it is not recommended to take bleeding medication or other drugs without clear instructions by doctor.


It is also recommended for your wife to consume enough drinking water daily (at least 8 glasses a day), avoid consuming foods that are textured hard enough, and also use a mask during activities until complaints of coughing are completely gone.


I hope this helps.
