My son has had a cough for a week and a half. I have been giving him his breathing treatment that he takes when he is congested in his lungs. I also have given him mucinex. He is 12 years old. Today he vomited and in his vomit were lots of brown strands( as if dried blood ) along with all the mucous. Today he hasnt had anything really brown to eat. He does not have a fever . cough only. What could this be a sign of?

General & Family Physician 's  Response

Your son is suffering from acute bronchitis / pharyngitis. Repeat bouts of cough can lead to vomiting. This is expected. The contents of vomitus may vary in color and it does not necessarily relate to the food. You should give him antacids, anti nausea medication also along with anti tussives.

Take care.
