Question: I have a cough and a slight fever. It is a deep cough and I often cough up blood. Coughing up blood is what scares me. It is the third time since Thanksgiving that these symptoms have appeared. I went to urgent care for the one at Thanksgiving then again at Christmas. Both times they put me on antibiotics for pneumonia. What worries me is why does it keep reccuring?
