Bloody cough: I'm sorry that you're having this difficulty. Your problem is that when you cough hard you notice blood tinges in the sputum that you cough up. This can be quite normal especially at your age. If it continues or gets worse you need to see a physician who will probably order a chest x-ray. Take over-the-counter cough medicine and treat the cold with fluids, cough medicine and rest. Don't worry ...Read more

Depends: Are you bringing up mucus or foamy material? Is there acid ingestion (stomach, esophagus) or chest congestion? Is the blood that you see a blood-tinged material or clots of blood? Are you taking aspirin or blood thinners? Blood tinged may only indicate irritation caused by stressful effort, and clots are definitely serious.

With a swollen tonsil, you could have a throat abscess which can be very dangerous. "Hot Potato" voice is a symptom of this. Coughing blood is not normal. Any problems breathing are considered an emergency. ...Read more
