I recommend contacting your physician and advising that symptoms did not resolve and in fact are now more prominent. Provider will help to determine next course of action.

The source for your blood leak has to be found first, either sinuses, dental or airways and the process causing it firmly identified. While an infection might have been identified in the sputum, its actual origin would help in treating it at the source. If antibiotics are indeed needed, their selection should be guided on sensitivity and duration of treatment firmly followed based on source.
