Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,
How old is your friend?
I would be happy to discuss this over the phone. I accepted the request and received this message:
Payment for this service failed, please do not fulfill yet. We will attempt to reach this customer to fix the situation.
How long has he been coughing out blood?
That's a long time to be coughing up blood.
At this point, I would not recommend any over the counter medication until we have a better idea of what's causing it.
I would recommend that he gets a chest x ray initially and possibly a ct scan afterwards if needed.
Then, he can be treated appropriately based on the imaging results.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.
I wish there was a better option.
He can get a chest x ray for around $50 at pretty much any outpatient facility.
Please don't forget to leave a rating, thanks.
If not, please don't forget to leave a rating, thanks!
