Hi
you are almost having like bronchitis symptoms which is turned on with cool air and temperature changes,if you are having a dry cough, this will cause irritation and scratching of the throat causing some blood to come out,if so then you can just take an anti histamine once daily to avoid the symptoms,,if your cough is productive of sputum then you will need to get an expectorant,and drink plenty of warm fluids…

hi
these symptoms can be due to long standing bronchitis or early stages of asthma.
you should get spirometry,ct chest and if necessary a bronchoscopy done to see whats wrong.
breathing exercises in fresh air will help.
avoid doing strenous work outs.
consult a physician.
thanks
