Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query.Read and noted your history of pain in the chest on coughing, laughing and Coughing. You also have reddish throat, catarrh, fever, weakness and Headache.These indeed are looking like a flu but now since you have blood in the catarrh, it is highly advisable to have an antibiotic, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory to cover for a symptomatic relief and for avoiding secondary infection.Also, take bed rest, plenty of oral fluids for early recovery.I hope this answer helps you.
