Cold, cough, fever, vomiting with little blood. Concerning? - Online Doctor Chats
hi this xxxxxx
Dr. XXXXXXX here
Yes how can I help you?
last night i was suffering from cold,fever and vomitings with liittle blood
what can be the probabale reasons for this
Since when are you having these symptoms?
Do you also have cough?
from alt night
How are you feeling today?
yes i have cought too
today also i am feeling heavy at my throar with nose blocked
How many episodes of vomiting did you have?
Did you find spots of blood or was the whole vomitus stained with blood?
twice in the morning at the time of brushing
but vomiting was not severe
Was it bright red in colour or dark brown in colour?
no i have never undergone the tests for these
Let me brief you.
As you mentioned the colour of blood found was red and you have only minimal amounts, this is not something serious.
And the commonest cause is viral infection.
people having upper respiratory tract infection usually have a fragile respiratory and lower pharyngeal wall.
And sometimes due to a severe bout of coughing, the fragile wall can break leading to bright red minimal bleeding.
What you experienced yesterday was probably the same.
An alternative possibility is minor tear in the esophagus
This again is not a serious issue as the amount of bleeding was not much.
What you would need to do now is as follows
1. Watch the progress of the condition.
If you find there is recurrence of vomiting, increase in the amount of blood or if you find lots of dark brown coloured blood spots
you need to visit a hospital immediately.
2. Take symptomatic treatment such as
- Steam inhalation thrice a day
steam with any vicks
actually it is not that much severe
i got a cold bcos of climate change
and it is getting blocked some times and daily morning i am having ginger tea
Steam inhalation with vicks or menthol will give added benefits than just boiling water.
i think it must be of heat in body
I understand your symptoms.
oh ok will do it morning & night
Viral flu is common during climate change (especially during cold weather)
presence of fever suggest your symptoms are due to an infection and rather than simple allergies.
and i had head ache also yestdy
seeing a doctor would be beneficial, but there is no urgency here.
bcos of tension & stress
ok then i will check the doctor today
These symptoms are usually self limiting and would gradually improve in a few days.
You can visit your doctor; in the mean time I encourage you to perform steam inhalation.
Calpol can be used if you are having higher body temperature.
Hope it is clear to you.
Do you have any other queries?
Are you there?
tell me sir
Hope you have received my recommendations.
ya i will try with steam inhalation for a week
then will c the difeence
Yes, steam inhalation will work.
In addition to it,
keep yourself well hydrated with plenty of fluids.
Plenty of fruits and vegetables will give extra boost to fight back infection and get back to normality sooner.
Proceed with your other query/
will surely take your words and follow hereon doctor
as of now this is my only problem
You are welcome.
Thanks for consulting me.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
Bye for now.
