Coughing up green mucus symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up green mucus symptoms


Avatar m tn Make an appointment to see your doctor to check your throat and ears and lungs. If the doctor is of the opinion that this is a bacterial infection, he will prescribe you with an antibiotic. At home do steam inhalations. Boil up a kettleful of water (taking care not to get scalded). Pour this into a bowl and put in some Vick, Olbas oil or any other decongesting oil you like. Bend your head over the bowl and cover your head and the bowl with a towel.

Avatar n tn I might not cough all day, then it hits me. I do feel like I have some mucus I want to cough up after coughing. At times, a cold or warm drink seems to bring it on or just walking into air conditioning. My right nostril seems clear, a little congestion in the left. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn go to nature sunshine on the net and look up colloidal silver order this and take this for pneumonia as you would antibiotic (a teaspoon in a very small amount of juice 1/2 ounce) every eight hours for three to seven days until the mucus that you cough up is clear (not yellow,green or brown) when the mucus clears this lets you know that the infection is gone. Stop taking the colloidal silver even though the cough may still be there and you may be coughing up clear mucus.
Avatar n tn What are the symptoms of Sinusitis? I am coughing and spitting up on occassion. Have no fever.
Avatar f tn When the nose is too dry, it doesn't humidify the air sufficiently, then as it moves along it drys and thickens mucus further down. Eating stimulates saliva flow which starts to loosen the thick mucus and you end up with a cough. In my own case it's often a deep choking cough. It can help to drink some water about 15min or so before eating. Flushing the nose with saline solution beforehand can help as well.
Avatar n tn 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. Last time I used to wake up inthe middle of the night choking - really horrid problem and the lack f sleep only makes things worse.
Avatar n tn And the next day, I started coughing up small amounts of blood, sometimes combined with mucus, sometimes just blood clots, the blood seemed dark, not pink, and I didn't cough blood all the time, I would cough some blood, then it stopped, and maybe much later that day, or the next day, some more blood..
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I've Bern coughing up clear mucus with green specks. There's a head and chest thing going around my home. Gives body aches chills and make me very tired. Pain in my left lung area under my left breast and under my arm pit to the side of my left breast.
Avatar f tn I realize coughing up yellowish-green or green mucus is normal when you have bronchitis, but what about bright, lemon yellow colored mucus? What is it? What caused it? How do I get rid of it? Should I be worried? (Have had typical bronchitis symptoms for aprox. 3 weeks...cough, chest congestion, runny/congested nose, lots of phlem, lose of voice, raspy voice, deep chest cough, fever (first week), trouble sleeping because it feels like someone is sitting on my chest when I lay down...
Avatar n tn I have been having the same symptoms since mid-February (2005). The mucus that I cough up is clear and sticky/thick. It is so disgusting. I have been to the dr. and only get prescribed allergy meds. Nothing works, no kind of cough med or allery med or anything at all. I have coughed so hard at times that I am unable to stand while doing so. I have felt such pain that I feared that I broke a rib...That made for a pointless dr. visit--I got x-rays and no one EVER called me back with results.
Avatar m tn I live in the south and at this month of March our pollen count is up around is considered high at 95, needless to say it is a allergy nightmare here and it usually keeps on throughout the year. I have read similar forums about these symptoms.Everyone seems to discuss their doctors and medicines, but I would like to know where they live. Do you consider that. Do people in the desert have these problems?
Avatar f tn Its very mucus-y and hoarse. Sometimes i cough so hard for so long i throw up green mucus. When i tilt my head back the cough gets worse. Also i cough so hard i cant breathe for a few seconds and then im fine. In the beginning, i had a normal cold. But then all the cold symptoms (headache, earache, stuffy nose) went away and the cough never did. About a week ago, all the cold symptoms came back, and lately i've been waking up with my right eye crusted shut.
Avatar n tn Hey I'm five months pregnant, nd I was wondering can you cough up yo mucus plug. Dis afternoon I woke up coughing and a big piece of mucus came out wit blood in it wht should I do.
Avatar n tn i can taste infection when i swallow and i keep coughing up mucus that has blood in it, what does blood in my mucus mean?
Avatar n tn I followed his advice and its been about a week and i am worse then i was and still coughing up blood. My chest pain is now constant and i get short of breath easily. My heart feels like its going to pump out of my chest. So i am just wondering what else could be going on or if this could just be really bad bronchitis any suggesions would be great thankyou.
Avatar m tn Coughing up clear phlyem at night inthe morning throughout the day is my symptoms. It started about four weeks ago and there was green phlyem but has now beem replaced with clear. Anybody got any hints of what I have?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn I tried to ignore it until the day I passed out from the coughing. Shortly after I threw up while coughing and aspirated it back in a failed attempt to catch a breath. Off to the doctor I went and he knew immediately that I had Pertussis (or whooping cough). He explained that you usually get it after another illness and their is NO TREATMENT. Again, no treatment. Cough medicines with suppressants-expectorants-codeine do nothing and may even make the cough worse.
Avatar n tn It could be from your throat, your sinuses, your larynx or down in your lungs. The yellow mucus suggests an infection. Given the symptoms in your nose, throat and ears, the most likely site is your sinuses. That could also be the reason for the headache you had. You may or may not need an antibiotic for the presumed infection, but only if it is bacterial. You should have a good exam of your ears, nose and throat.
Avatar m tn My symptoms have started to abate; it's been two weeks, and I'm still a little stuffed up, but the mucus has reduced in volume significantly, and is no longer yellow and is either clear or a creamy greenish color. The dental pain is also no more, and seems to be mostly related to the previous sinus inflammation as far as I can tell. However, something happened recently that's made me a little worried, simply because it was strange.
Avatar n tn All day I am having to clear my nose and throat I am also coughing up mucus that has collected in my chest. I am assuming it is an allergic reaction to all foods eaten but it is very worrisome. I have had food allergy tests done but nothing show up. Any ideas would be welcome. Thank you.
