Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Do you have any oral/dental/sinus problems?Have you had a similar episode earlier?Fresh blood is usually secondary to sinus problems,gum injuries,tongue bite or oral ulcers.Cough associated problems would include many factors such as acute Bronchitis,bronchial adenoma,pneumonitis or any similar problem.You need t be seen by your PCP/Doctor at the earliest,you may need hospitalisation if there is a serious infection or systemic problem .
