In brief: Need doc to see

This may indicate a number of problems.
Blood in the sputum always needs a medical evaluation. Post flu a secondary bacterial infection such as pneumonia or bronchitis is possible, and this may require antibiotics. Other problems may be the cause as well. Someone with this problem needs to speak to their doctor.
