Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Pseudomonas respiratory infections usually present with chronic and increasingly severe productive cough, decreased appetite, weight loss, and diminished activity, particularly during exacerbation. There may be wheezing/ blue hands/feet etc in severe cases. Blood in sputum is not a characteristic finding. However, you cannot rule out pseudomonas infection based on this finding. Chronic cough can at times damage the mucosa of throat and cause bleeding. Take care!
