Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The cough and sore throat you have could probably be due to chemical irritation caused by the Meth (metamfetamine ) you snorted.

This is not a serious condition and do not cause any complication.Need not worry.Do take a dose of Tab Benadryl in the night after food , this will reduce the irritation and the symptoms you have.

Also do take steam inhalation with Eucalyptus in it , this will soothen the throat mucosa and provide you relief.

Since the throat is irritated and sensitive , there are chances of it being infected.Hence, do gargle with antiseptic solution like Chlorhexidine twice daily after food for two days.

Hope I answered your query.

Please do let me know if there are any other concerns.

Hi,

The blood in the mucus could be due to minor abrasions, which occur due to cough.

I would consider it better for you to once get examined by your treating doctor to be sure of the fact.

Meanwhile do continue the remedies I suggested above.

Wish you good health.
