Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
There are different causes of blood in the mucus or sputum.
Common cause is an infection.
Several common bacterial infection or viral infection can cause it.
Other probables are bronchitis, bronchiectasis.
In some cases however no cause is found.
You need to get it checked by your doctor again.
Chest X ray/ scan, scope, sputum test can be taken.
You are taking antibiotic already.
But it needs to be investigated again.
I hope this information will be helpful.
