Hello, Susi Elviana, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Previously, it must be distinguished first whether you experience this coughing up blood or vomiting blood. However, in general, bleeding from the mouth can be caused by injuries to the digestive tract (mouth, esophagus, to the stomach) or in the breathing apparatus (from the nose, throat, to the lungs). Injuries to the digestive tract, for example: bleeding gums, peptic ulcers, erosive gastritis, etc. Injury can be caused due to infection, poisoning, the habit of taking anti-inflammatory drugs, etc. Injury to the airway can be caused by a history of coughing that is too hard and often, irritation of the airways, infections (for example: tuberculosis), bronchiectasis, and so on. Apart from the above reasons, several other things can also cause blood to come out of the mouth, for example: rupture of esophageal varices, disruption of blood clots, etc.
To determine the cause, more complete data is needed regarding the course of the disease, accompanying symptoms, and history of the disease. In addition, it needs a direct physical examination by a doctor as well as supporting examinations, for example a complete blood test, sputum test, x-ray photos, or endoscopy. Treatment will be determined according to the cause.
So, you should go to the doctor so that the exact cause is known, especially if bleeding continues, blood volume is increasing, or accompanied by symptoms such as: coughing for more than 2 weeks, shortness of breath, abdominal pain, weakness, blood / black bowel movements, vomiting fever, weight loss, see a doctor immediately.
Inadequate fluid needs, avoid spicy foods, sour, coffee, alcohol, enough to rest, and continue to eat with soft-textured food. Eat a little but often to avoid vomiting.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
