I have a cold, handling it the past few days.
Last night, a really bad cough woke me up. Really bad dry cough and spitting out a lot of phlegm.
One of the really painful coughs had a really little drop of blood in the phlegm.
I am really worried.
This hasn’t happened again that night or at all.
Just that little drop.i am 19 non smoker or anything.
What’s going on??

Hello. Thank you for posting.

The blood is likely the result of prolonged coughing or a chest infection.  If it continues, see your doctor.
