Coughing up hard lumps of catarrh with blood, throat pain. Need help

can anything help me coughing up hard bloody lumps of catarrh from a painful throat infection? I have them quite regularly throughout my childhood and adult life but in between infections it constantly feels like something touching the back of my throat making me gag, especially in the mornings, so I have to keep clearing my throat and using cough sweets but its usually clear mucus having this effect in between the infections
