Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into the problem I will like to tell you that it is a possibilty that you are suffering from pneumonitis . Since you are giving history of blood in transparent phlegm it raises the suspicion of having rusty sputum . You need to see a physician for this . A Complete blood count , ESR , CRP , Sputum c/s , Chest X Ray will be minimally required . You will need a course of antibiotics for this and possibilty of tuberculosis also needs to be ruled out . A careful auscultation of chest is advisable . Take care. Dr. Shruti
