STOP WEEDS: If this tiny blood in sputum scares you enough, that is good. And stop Smoking weeds. It s addicting. Cough could be from Irritation from smoking not necessarily infection. Some times repeated coughing can cause blood tinged sputum. Nevertheless you should be examined by your pediaterician. or Family physician.
