Please don't worry, as lung infections like pneumonia can cause hemoptysis (coughing up blood). This should resolve once the infection subsides. Infections like tuberculosis can also cause this symptom. Other inflammations and tumors of the lungs can also cause this symptom. Since the white spot is reducing, it could most probably be resolving. And as your symptoms are improving continue with your medications, try to take warm oral fluids and do steam inhalations prior to your meals. This helps to loosen up and bring out the secretions. Also, get a good balanced diet to boost up your immune system and to help tackle the infection. So, don't worry and you can post any further queries you have, will be glad to answer.
