Common Questions and Answers about Coughing out green mucus

coughing

I have had a cold now for over a week, I am coughing up green sticky mucus and blowing out a lot of green mucus.
Maybe the doctors are correct too. I just personally haven't heard of colored mucus from allergy. Allergy can cause mucus that can lead to bacteria infection too. See another doctor.

No problem there, I have had bronchitis several times. What concerns me is that a few days ago I was coughing up pink mucus. Then it turned into a peach color, now it is getting brighter with orange. Now, I did go to grade school so I am thinking yellow + red = orange. I asked the Dr. at the E.R. he didn't seem to have an answer for me and was not concerned about this. Why is my mucus a solid orange mass that I am coughing up? No, I have not eaten or drank anything that was orange or pink.
I was smoking it regularly, sometimes very heavily for about 7 months. Last week I started coughing up green thick mucus, and a couple of times there was a small amount of red blood present in clear mucus. I have a terrible cough, that is sometimes accompanied with dizziness. I am not sure if I have a fever(no thermometer)and sometimes feel a little sick to my stomach. I have slight chest pain, described best as a tightness. At night, the tightness gets pretty uncomfortable.
Hi, I used to have the problem of coughing and lot's of mucus after eating. If I laid down right afterward, the mucus would come up in my throat and it would feel as though I couldn't breathe. None of the over-the-counter antiacids helped me. It wasn't until I started taking Nexium that I got any relief at all. I also have post-nasal drip, so it was a combination of things that was causing the cough, but once I got those things treated, the cough and the mucus went away.
Sometimes it is clear,sometimes yellow and there are even times it has come out green or with brown chunks in it. The only way I can get rid of this mucus is by doing this HORRIBLE hacking and expelling it from my throat! I have tried antibiotics and expectorants.The antibiotics didn't help AT ALL and the expectorants don't solve the problem. I wake up every morning and have to "expel" anywhere from 2-3 LARGE chunks of this thick, snot like substance and I'm ready for it to STOP!!!
i started getting a sore throat and then stuffy nose, cough you know the drill, then about week after that i got diarrhoea which lasted for 4 days. After that i started getting joint pain and consist coughing up mucus. Ive also had slightly swollen lymph nodes but non tender and i dont know if it was just anxiety driven. Also been itchy all over but also unknown if anxiety driven. I told my partnee to get tested and he said he came back negative, i didnt get tested.
Please know that coughing (unles it's a hairball) or panting is NOT ok in your cat. We had an upper resp, virus go through our house and 2 cats were fine. The 3rd I thought had mucus in his throat or trouble breathing due to stuffy nose like the rest and didn't realise his distress till he coughed up a frightening gob of green phlegm. Bob spent last night @ the vet w/pneumonia. happily (so far-say prayers for my boy) all signs looking good for him and he's coming home tonight.
Lately, the past week or so, my nose has gotten alot worse, and when i blow my nose when i have a headache, i get severly green mucus, and a bloody nose. The bloody nose worries me most, it is worse than when some one gets a broken nose, because it just flows and flows, but after it stops, i dont have a headache anymore, and the pressure in my sinuses are gone. Am i dying lol? If not, what should i do?
For months at a time I get a little bit of morning mucus thats green or yellow in my morning cough. I have no fever, no major coughing, no serious shortness of breath. I feel bad...but I always feel bad due to fibromyalgia/disc/migraine problems. I do have allergies/asthma thats being treated - I take Singulair 10mg plus I have a rescue inhaler should the allergies get real bad. My last chest x ray was 2 yrs ago (at the hosp. for unrelated issues) and showed some scattered granulomas.
Try steam inhalation along with ambroxol and bronchodilator (terbutaline, salbutamol etc) to ease out coughing. Better consult doctor to rule out bronchoconstriction. Prolonged cough should be investigated.

I've been suffering for about a week but several months ago it was for almost an entire month Wake up inthe morning coughing up yellow / green mucus and then it goes clear but it's constant and so sticky - it won't even easily wash off the sides of the basin.

I've been coughing up the same hard, yellow, reddish mucus for months and months. It became a lot more frequent lately and it seemed as if I had a sinus infection. I went to an ENT and he took a culture of "puss" coming from the top of my nasal cavity. The doctor called an told me that it was Staph and it should be curred with antibiotics. After reading several things on Staph, I believe I will go buy the topical ointment as well. Hopefully it will clear it up.

severe ringing in ears and can't hear out of right ear at all, hacking cough that is very persistent at night and coughing up green to brown phelm. Is this something I need antibiotics for? Should the loss of hearing and ringing in ear be of concern?
The nursery have now recommended a homeopath who I am going to try and see if it makes a difference as I really feel now two years after this started that it is affecting his quality of life - he can't play for too long with out fits of coughing - when he gets a cold he is sick every/every other day and at breakfast time he can hardly keep his breakfast down because of the phelgm he is unable to clear from his throat.
I have also been able to stop my coughing fits and itchy throat by simply wearing a good filter mask over my nose and mouth. You see the Japanese wearing them alot. They know! I hope this information is useful to some of you, sometimes a problem is as plain as the nose on your face....covered by a mask. Now I must go operate on my ingrown toenail-deaden it with Ora-gel and dig away. God Bless The U.S.
Every time I get viral bronchitis, it begins w/clear mucus & progresses to green specs in it then gradually on to all green then to green/brown. Maybe you have an infection that your body is fighting off & so far it's not bad. If you haven't had this problem before, go to www.viralbronchitis.com & follow the instructions for home treatment.
I've been coughing up unbelievable amounts of phlem and blowing my nose and more coming out. After I cough or blow my nose I can literally feel the mucus going from my nose to my throat. When I put my hand to my chest I can feel it so I cough it up and it's gone. It's never ending. The mucus balls are jelly like green yellowish and almost the size of a dime. It scared me. I'm not a smoker and I been on antibiotics, amocillian 500mg every 6 hrs for 3 days now.
Occasionally chest pains, fever, and fatigue or malaise may also occur. Mucus is often green or yellowish green and also may be orange or pink, depending on the pathogen causing the inflammation. Chronic bronchitis is caused most often by exposure to airborne pollutants such as cigarette smoke, excessive dust in the air, or chemicals. Bronchitis caused by allergies can also be classified as chronic bronchitis. Chronic bronchitis also can have an asthmatic component.

I have had the same cough for several years. It's always after I eat. I've been to all kinds of doctors and have tried all kinds of medicines but the only thing that ever helped me was Prednisone. The problem is that it's a steroid and doctors don't like to give it because it has side effects, but I can take it for 7 days and then I'm good for a couple of months with absolutely no coughing. When it starts again I take it for another week.
is it possible that his lungs could be full of mucus and he just cannot get it out? he has been on 4 rounds of antibiotics bit nothing has shifted it.. I have told the docs that I will not give him anymore antibiotics.. would I be completely over the top to ask for an x-ray?
I know it's not bacterial because I'm not coughing up a lot d green mucus or have that drowning feeling in my lungs. I think it's just my Annual Bronchitis kicking in it has always started during late fall early winter. But I am going to be setting a doctor appointment so I can get more of those Tessalon pearls.
The glob was white and seemed like a really thick mucus and it had globs of blood on it and a green mucus around it. I found that after that one sneeze I just had to blow once (clear mucus came out) and my nose was clear again. My throat and head still hurt really bad and now I am kinda feverish. Are this glob and sickness related or do I just have a cold and this just happened to happen now. Also I read that this was common after a surgery but I have never had any kind of surgery!
