Throat infection green phlegm

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection green phlegm


Avatar f tn Yellow can also be an infection, but usually you can still fight it off without an antibiotic if it's yellow. Green is a more advanced infection. You should see your doctor and get an antibiotic. If it were from COPD or CHF it would be clear or white.
Avatar m tn After getting on the antibiotic, which I started three days ago now, I don't have the sinus headache anymore but the earache and sore throat are still there pretty strong. Finally, the phlegm in my throat stopped being so green/brown and recently went to a clear/white thick with bright red in it. Last night I brought up some that was all red. I only started coughing after the blood was found in my phlegm, so what could possibly cause this?
Avatar n tn If he/she is at all uncertain about the diagnosis or indicates that further evaluation is not warranted, I suggest that, if you believe it is coming from your lungs, that you see a lung specialist, also known as a pulmonologist, and if you decide the green phlegm is coming from your nose, throat or sinuses that you see an ENT specialist. At bare minimum, you should have a chest x-ray and examination of the sputum. Good luck.
Avatar n tn But i haven't had any respiratory disease so far other than frequent throat infection(my doctor says tonsils infection). Sticky phlegm sticks to the back of my throat very frequently and i have to struggle hard to get rid of that. :( Kindly mail me at ***@**** if u find any solution for this.
Avatar m tn I always awake with layers or lumps of green nose dirt (mucus ?) in my nose. Also I have a frequent need to clear my throat and I cough up phlegm which is often green. I have thought it was associated with a cold but it has been there now for months or even years and I do not think I have a cold. Or is it possible to have cold symptoms which linger for months? Can I do anything to help this condition ? Thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn But for the last two weeks, I have been coughing up heavy amounts of phlegm, from clear to yellow, to light green and back to yellow. The cough is hard and uncontrollable and I thought it was a bronchial infection. When I laugh, I hear (and feel) a wheezing that instantly produces coughing and phlegm. My doctor can't see me until next week and people have told me it could be anything from pneumonia to tuberculosis.
Avatar n tn Hi, if your phlegm is green in colour it may be that you have an infection and sometimes with an infection there can be small amounts of blood and you should then see your doctor to perhaps get an antibiotic. If the phlegm is not green as long as it is not large amounts of blood then as jaja says it may be due to excessive coughing. Again i am not a doctor but i do work in the field of respiratory medicine. if you are concerned then speak to your doctor.
Avatar n tn It all started with a seasonal cough which brought up very thick green phlegm. The cough cleared up but the production of phlegm has not ceased. Especially but not limited to the mornings I clear my throat and I bring up very think and sticky greeny-brown phlegm, consistency would be twice as thick as wallpaper paste. I have been a smoker but not for the last 9 months and I never had a problem with phlegm before this cough two years ago.
Avatar m tn This time the soreness persisted the whole entire day. I went to bed last night with a lot of phlegm in my throat and woke up this morning with a lot of soreness and phlegm once again. I tried to hack up the phlegm. Most of it was clear or yellow. Then I managed to get a real good one... I hacked up a real thick sample that was directly from my throat, and spit it out onto a tissue. I noticed a streak of blood on the tissue mixed with yellow phlegm.
502070 tn?1210208094 It seems to continually build up just behind my nose - not my throat. It is clear white, not dark or green. This seems to happen regardless of what I eat. I have cut out all dairy - it has had no effect, or a barely discernable effect. Could I be alergic to something I don't know about? I just ate fruit for a whole day and a half - it had no effect. My nose is a little off-centre, and I wonder if I have a deviated septum and could this be a cause?
125112 tn?1217277462 I know this phlegm is coming from my lungs because in having looked down my throat months ago (my voice was effected)I could see this gunk stuck just below my vocal cords. I cleared my throat, spit and it came up. My question is, if my x-rays are coming back clean: do you know what is going on here? Thanks much, ~Kate P.S. was tested for Tuberculosis and it came back neg.
Avatar n tn I wake up in the mornings and consistently have rusty or green colored phlegm, which is sometimes hard. Sometimes it's even streaked with blood. My throat often feels tight, like it's constricted. Now I noticed that the left side of the back of my throat looks different than the right, not color wise, but from the positioning. My uvula is also off center.
Avatar n tn Hi there, Green phlegm indicated infection and that would explain fever and sore throat. You may need antibiotics to get rid of it.
Avatar n tn i've been spitting white/clearless foamy phlegm for a week now and sometimes in the morning the phlegm is light green..i thought it was caused by allergy and took claritin but it does not help...what caused this? flu?
Avatar f tn It acts as a natural antibiotics if you do have a throat infection. It has been doing wonders for me. Drink plenty of water so you body can flush out the toxins. Green Tea has also been found to shorten the recovery from the flu or cold. Vitamin C is another great immune booster. You can take more than the RDA recommends. In fact your body needs so much more. You can't really overdose on Vitamin C since it is a water soluble vitamin.
Avatar f tn The thing about TCM is that the treatments are tailored to treat the individual, not the symptoms. Everyone's body is different and even though we may all present with similar symptoms, the reason for this will vary, and taking someone else's herbal prescription may be completely ineffective or may exasperate the condition, especially if there is any other pattern going on simultaneously (which is usually the case).
Avatar f tn After 8 weeks, I got a cold, fever, sore throat, cloudy nose and cough with lots of yellow and green phlegm. Since it is flu season in my place now, I want to be sure is this a possible sign of HIV infection? That guy did not ejaculate inside me. I am afraid of pre-ejaculation. We had unprotected sex.
Avatar n tn gargle with warm salted water deep in the throat and the mouth to kill the bacteria. drink it to cleanse the system and kill the bacteria along the way. drink a bag of green tea after that and refill every hour till the same bag is completely used up. check & documant symtoms before & after. tell yourself how is it.
Avatar n tn Another symptom is constant mucous (phlegm) in my throat, this has lasted ever since the cold as well. I feel a lump of phlegm in the back of my throat whenever I swallow. Sometimes it feels thick enough that I bring it out of my throat and spit it out. When spit out, the phlegm is typically clear or white. Finally I saw my primary care about 3 weeks ago. He said I have a post-nasal drip, and that I should have seen him when I first had the cold.
Avatar n tn Now the phlegm has gotten to be very thick and is in the back of my throat in which I try and pull it up. I've noticed over the last few days that I also am having pain in my left lung when I smoke and even when I don't smoke it feels sore. What could this be?
Avatar n tn In the mornings the throat is more picky and I get a little green nasal discharge. The chest phlegm is most sticky and cannot be expelled up and out, I am forced to swallow... sorry to be so gruesomely graphic! I am not overly worried but a faint cloud of concern is slowly gathering on the horizon as I mark time for recovery. I would welcome ideas for diagnosis?
Avatar n tn Is your sputum brown, gray or green. That signifies an infection. It could be that you have some asthma as a result of a brochial infection.
Avatar n tn Starting with a generally dumpy feeling, I then began seeing excessive mucous being produced. The phlegm ran the gamut of colors from yellow to green to brown over the course of a week and a half. During this week +, I had that "dumpy" feeling and developed a cough (particularly bad at night) trying to expel all the mucous. There was no sore throat at all and I didn't seem to be feverish.
Avatar f tn First cough of the day and a large wad of green/grey phlegm came up. Took more cold medicine, On nasal spray and cold/cough medicine I feel almost human, but I am writing because this seems an odd progression of symptoms (that are not gone yet!) and the green/grey mucous in both sinuses and chest have me worried.
Avatar f tn But about 2 weeks ago i started getting a scratchy throat, it doesnt hurt when i swallow, i dont have a fever, and its on and off, typically worse at night, and in the mornings. I also cough up green phlegm, which in my understanding is a infection of some kind. Well this morning while driving to work, i got a bad cough, and vomiting. Thosr are the only symptoms, its better now, but i know it will pick up again soon. I need to know what it may be, some insight would help.
Avatar m tn I had the flu about a week ago, and I believe the excessive amount of sneezing damaged my nose. I blew my nose about two days ago and noticed blood, and I was coughing up green phlegm with some blood in it. I didn't think too much of it, but still went to doctor to see what he thought. He gave me an antibiotic treatment, and says that it was mostly due to irritation. I am just worried now, since I took pictures of my nose and throat and they still look red and bloody.
Avatar f tn Well with the green puss in the throat it would appear an infection but its not related to your affairs std wise as nothing you did would put your throat at any risk. The quick oral would affect your tongue and saliva contanins digestive enzimes that kill things.
Avatar f tn The next day, I woke up congested with a runny nose, I coughed up some green phlegm and felt fine the rest of the day. Now, I'm sneezing a bit with clear mucus and it doesn't feel like a cold at all. I DO have seasonal allergies, but I'm not sure if this was allergies, a sinus infection or viral pharyngitis? I'm thinking it was allergies because it was not terrible and is pretty much gone by now. Any input? Also: I'm VERY prone to sinus infections. I get about 2 or 3 a year.
Avatar m tn 3 days later I started getting a sore throat a day after that, congested nose and ears, and a very annoying cough with green phlegm. This has been going on for almost two weeks now. I am confused because online has almost every symptom known to man as early infection signs of HIV. Is it? Can it be something else? I am getting tested soon (it was just two weeks ago) but I'm alittle paranoid. Dazed and confused.
Avatar f tn Problems with the esophagus can also cause this feeling. Coughing up phlegm is usually a sign of COPD, smoker's cough, lung infection, asthma, PND, etc. Stress ( which is generally related to anxiety/depression ) can cause the throat to tighten as well.
