It seems from the history that your son has sore throat and cough. Violent coughing can also result to haemoptyisis or cough mixed with blood. So no need to worry. But if the symptoms like chest pain, fever with evening raise of temperarture are there then you need to consult physician or chest physician for further evaluation and treatment.

Thank you
