You are suffering from upper respiratory tract infection (sore throat). AZAZ contains azithromycin and that is good for sore throat. Also take tab allegra 120 once a day for 5-7 days. Do warm saline gargle three times a day. Blood drops in sputum is mostly from the eroded mucosa due to constant inflammation and cough. If blood in sputum persists or there is difficulty in degluttition consult an ENT specialist for proper examination of the throat. You can take paracetamole or ibuprofen if there is pain.
