I have been spitting phlegm with little blood these past few days without cough. I have also a history of tuberculosis but has been treated last year?
Please get checked: If you have some phlegm with blood in it, you need to see a doctor. Tuberculosis can be tricky-especially in the Philippines where there is a lot of it. Do you have any fevers? What about appetite or weight loss? Those are symptoms of TB. Sometimes TB can be resistant to medications, and I wonder if you took all the medicine you were prescribed? Hope you feel better.
