User :   okay

Doctor :   there is regular production of phlegm in your respiratory tract which is removed in the regulay manner by propulsive movements
Doctor :   in case of smokers the propulsive movements are slowed
Doctor :   which led to deposition of the phlegm in the respiratory tract
Doctor :   and sometimes this deposited phlegm gets infected by bacteria
Doctor :   which can turn the colour of the phlegm to yellow and can also cause some amount of bleeding
Doctor :   which will come out
Doctor :   along with phlegm
Doctor :   inyour case it is the infected phlegm which is coming out mixed with blood
Doctor :   as you had the examination by a doctor and you also have the prescription
Doctor :   in my opinion you should continue with the antibiotic tablet
Doctor :   it will help subside the infection
Doctor :   are you with me?
Doctor :   are you with me?
Doctor :   I have to close this window since there is no response from your side, please get back to us if you need further medical advice.
