Excessive Phlegm

I have COPD and emphysema.  I produce and expel an excessive amount of phlegm.  Usually it yellowish in color,
But frequently it is laced with blood.  On occasion it has been only blood.  I am uncertain whether this is coming from my sinuses or my lungs.  I also cannot expel nasal discharge unless I stimulate sneezing by tickling my nose with
a Qtip.  This usually results in a nose bleed.
Can you help?
