Hello.. Recurrent cough and cold means that there is infective focus not treated or you are allergic...ii suggest you to take steam regularly atleast thrice a day.. Use plain otrivin or nasivion drops which contains normal saline... As far as blood in mucus..I suggest you not to worry as it might be due to repeated blowing of nose leading to trauma... Avoid doing that...drink lots of water..atleast 8-10 glasses per day..please consult a physician and also get a chest x Ray done as its quite a long time
