i've got flu for about 3 weeks. now it's getting better, but since yesterday if i cough in the morning after i wake up i spit blood. it's only the first spit that contain blood, after that there's no blood. what should i do?
Blood in the spit is not normal and can be due to any infection in the throat and surrounding region.Since you had flu 3 weeks back it is advised to get a follow up evaluation done by the treating doctor.
