Coughing up thick yellow mucus

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up thick yellow mucus


Avatar n tn Nine months after recovering from terrible acute bronchitis, I am still coughing up small blobs of thick sticky, pale yellow mucus all day. My allergist says my asthma is under control, my sinuses are more or less clear, and I recently went to the cardiologist for a full workup. All that's left is GERD, but I'm unsure how to proceed because I hardly have any other symptoms.
Avatar n tn For the past 4 years I have been coughing up clear jelly like Mucus Balls. I have been a smoker for 8 years, and I have Asthma. I wake up in the morning and in the middle of the night coughing up a lot of the little mucus balls. It happens a little bit through out the day. Sometimes they are balls and sometimes they are like a hair, but made of mucus. I am very scared and do not have health insurance. I am 25, and thought I was pretty healthy. Please someone, HELP!
Avatar m tn Then about a couple of days ago, I had that tickle cough, but like a coughing attack episode. And It would be extreme thick clear sticky mucus, to the point of throwing up. The sore throat is on and off, but I think the slight pain in throat is from hacking up, so its inflamed, and so forth.
Avatar n tn So for about two days now i have been having an awfully painful (in my chest and throat) cough, i have been bringing up alot of (usually)-thick yellowy mucus just about everytime i cough and a stuffy noise. Also, every now and then i am getting upper back and side pain (but i asume that the pain in my back and sides are from constintly coughing). I am pregnant so i am just needing to know if it is somthing i should be woried about.

Avatar f tn I can deal with the wheezing, but 3 times now over the past 2 months I’ve started coughing hard and pulled up a thick, brown worm/slug like hard mucus that’s about 1.5 inches long and fairly thick. Directly after, I end up coughing up a small amount of orangish “regular” mucus. Otherwise, I haven’t coughed anything else up at all. Anyone know what this is? I can’t find anything online.
250701 tn?1320974765 My lung Doctor called me in some augmentin because I have been coughing up thick yellow mucus. I just don't know if I can take it on treatment. Does anyone know??
Avatar m tn The cough is stronger before I sleep through when I wake up or when it wakes me up (when it is the worst). At times, the mucus coughed out is either thick and yellow (but not much is coughed out) or it is clear and runny but is coughed out in half a mouthfuls. So far there is no blood in it. The doctors at my college and hospital give unhelpful suggestions and I'm at my wits end. I JUST WANT THIS TO STOP! IT'S MAKING ME CRAZY!
Avatar f tn What started as a sore throat has affected my lungs, difficulty breathing,(mainly exhaling)(raspy sound in throat when exhaling) coughing up rust, white and yellow mucus. I start to feel better, and then bam it gets worse. now it feels like there is gross mucus trapped in my lungs, & i dont know how to get it out. Sometimes after i cough, the phlegm is so bad it makes me sick to my stomach. I dont want to go to Dr. to be told its just a virus.
Avatar n tn Barbara533 Have you tried an antihistamine? rushtyyyyy green and yellow flem should not be coming up from allergy unless it is stomach acid. Usually allergy is clear mucus. I'm not a doctor but I wonder if it is a bacteria infection. Sorry I don't know the correct answer. 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.
Avatar n tn However, when I use my CPAP large amounts of mucous will build up in my throat, blocking my airway. I wake up choking. The mucous is yellow with streaks of blood in it. The pulmonary sleep specialists do not know what causes the mucous to fill up my airways. I do have esphogeal dymotility (cause undetermined) and no gag reflex. The best they can determine is whatever is affecting my swallowing may be causing this problem.
Avatar m tn This started like a head cold and still behaves like it with lots of mucus from my sinuses, balance problems and ear pressure. Some mucus comes up when I cough but not as much as there was for the first couple of days. Its yellow/brown colour and thick. I get very puffy even walking a short distance and start coughing. I have been on two kinds of anti biotics and chest Xray shows a buildup of gunk in the bottom of both lungs.
Avatar n tn for two days i was constantly coughing up the yellow/greenigh pghlem. why now, after all this time am i coughing up the colored pghlem?
Avatar f tn Every morning for 3 months, I've to cough up yellow phlegm. I cough very little during the day, but a bit more in the evening. I've had a dry cough for a year before that. I really concerned. A flu or something would go away in 3 weeks. I'm not feeling ill, just coughing. Went to my GP and got trsted for different bacteria and got a chest x-ray. All was normal. So what is it? Going to see my GP again next week, but i really bothers me.
Avatar n tn What cause thick yellow globes phlegms from nasal area? Had to cough it out when it irritates the throat. What treatment available?
Avatar n tn It may be a virus but usually if you cough up green or yellow mucus it could be a bacterial infection. Do you have a fever? Is it a loose cough?
Avatar n tn Im 37 weeks and 2 days and everytime I wipe after I pee it be alot of thick yellow mucus they tell me to monitor it but I dont know if I lost ma mucus plug or is it normal discharge
Avatar f tn Don't discount acid reflux as the culprit, or underlying problem. I have acid reflux and if it goes untreated, or gets out of control, I have allot coughing and cough up phlegm. It's usually milky, to yellow in color and it can be thick. It wouldn't hurt to try an over the counter drug, like . You don't have to have heartburn symptoms, to be suffering from acid reflux. Good luck and hope all is going well.

2078179 tn?1331940461 While the sore throat is gone I am still coughing up mucus, have a headache dizziness and at time extremely hot. I do also have a slight ear ache on both sides. I did have diabetes in the past but was able to get off medication because of diet and exercise but have gained a lot of the weight back.
Avatar f tn 4 months later I still have green and yellow, thick mucus. I have been on the steroid sinus rinse Pulmicort and also the nasal spray Atrovent for about 2 months now, I get really great deep tissue massages from my voice therapist who says my cough is a spastic or proprioceptive cough. Still my cough persists and it comes mostly when I'm working as a server and when I'm talking. No amount of cough syrup, lozenges, steam helps it once it starts I just keep coughing.
Avatar f tn I have a similar problem as well, except wen i pee at the end of my pee it gives me a severe burning sensation and thats wen i produse the thick grean yellow and red mucus stuff. My mom wont take me to the doctor so i wanna know if its bad so i can show here. i really need help its been like this for about 2 or 3 weeks not, and i really cant take the pain.
Avatar m tn For the past three months, I have had chest and sinus congestion, manifesting itself in hacking/coughing, wheezing, and expectorating thick yellow (various shades) mucus. I "sound" like I have a cold, but I don't. No other symptons have been present. Two regimens of antibiotics have proven to be ineffective. I am using daily the generic equivalent of Flonase, am also taking an antihistamine, Advair, and doing nasal irrigation with a neti pot.
Avatar f tn Well, I tell ya, pregnancy brings out the colors of the rainbow in terms of discharge!! Yellow mucus is actually listed as normal. If it goes to a greenish color, call your doctor as that is an indication of an infection. If your mucus isn't itchy or super thick, then I'd say it is normal. (normal for pregnancy that is). If you have any additional symptoms develop though, call your doc to be safe.
