Psychiatrist 's  Response
Blood-laced mucus from the sinus or nose area can be sometimes be misidentified as symptomatic of hemoptysis (such secretions can be a sign of nasal or sinus cancer, but also a sinus infection). Extensive non-respiratory injury can also cause one to cough up blood. Cardiac causes like congestive heart failure and mitral stenosis should be ruled out.
The origin of blood can be identified by observing its color. Bright red, foamy blood comes from the respiratory tract while dark red, coffee-colored blood comes from the gastrointestinal tract. Sometimes hemoptysis may be rust colored.

Welcome to HCM.
Dont worry,your blood reports are not suggestive for TB. but increase eosinofil count is called eosinofilia and suggestive of some allergy. also go for allergy test to reach the cause of allergy.
Take dewormin tab.,
Consult your physician for further guidance and medical management.

Hello.Welcome.Your reports are normal now including eosinhils.10%eosinophils are OK and no treatment if you don't have any symptoms now.High eosinophils are due to allergy which can be caused by so many factors.Your platelet counts are also normal.Good luck.

Hi,thanks for query.Your blood reports are suggestive of some allergy.When ever you have cough since 4-5 days at times the skin inside the throat gets irritated and decomes red.When you cough forcefully it can lead to slight amount of blood in the cough.Your x ray is normal,so do not think there is any reason for worry.continue treatment and you will be fine.
wishing you good health.
