Sometimes with a very forceful cough there can be specks of blood or actual amounts of blood in the phlegm. Blood will have a typical metallic/iron taste

I've recently went to the doctor & i have bronchitis. now my cough has worsened & i have a horriable taste in my mouth like a metal!

Antibiotic?

Cough
they may have given you an anti-biotic that causes nasty metal taste. the most common ones are biaxin (clarithromycin) and flagyl (metronidazole), but if your cough is worsening you should let the doctor know, and get re-checked sooner to make sure not turning into pneumonia.

Yellow mucus that tastes like a wet diaper along with cough?

How do you know...

Cough
...it tastes like a wet diaper? In any case, yellow mucus and cough can be part of a common cold. If it's accompanied by a high fever, severe ear/throat/other pain, vomiting, difficulty breathing, or goes on longer than two weeks, see your doctor.

I have a metalic taste in my mouth when I cough. What might be the cause.?

URI, cold, bronchial

Head-mouth
change in quantity and type of mucus in response to a bronchial infection can taste different in your mouth when coughed up. Resolution of the cold, bronchitis etc., should return things back to normal, no apparent taste. Regular mucus probably has some minimal taste but you just get used to it and don't notice it. You're noticing the change

You are ill. You have a cough and you are producing purulent sputum. You need to be seen by your physician urgently. That is what this means.

Woke up this am,congested,coughing up clear phlegm (taste bad)& a vapor like when.breathing out in the cold .very hard to breathe.

URI

Call your doctor if your symptoms seem severe... if "hard to breath" means lungs, see someone right away. Pneumonia is still a dangerous disease that requires treatment even if it starts out as a virus.
