Answer #1

SAME THING IS HAPPENING TO MEH!!! but I dont have to cough if idont want to, but when I do whitish green phlem comes up.

Answer #2

I agree with all of the above. It’s time to see a doctor, especially if you’re coughing a lot as well. It sounds like you have an infection.

Answer #3

You really need to go see a doctor this sounds like an infection that is developed in the lungs and if it si not attended on time is could become pnemonia. It’s really dandreus believe me!! My brother was the same way and he ended up almost not living , go to the doctor and hopefully everything will be ok:)

Answer #4

I agree with the above, if it is asthma you DO want a doctor to diagnose that and prescribe the appropriate medication to help you deal with it.

upper respiratory infections are nothing to screw around with , thay can lead to all kinds of nasty things.

follow mikeh’s advice and get to the docs office.

Answer #5

Two weeks is officially ‘go see a doctor’ time, especially if you don’t smoke. Yellow phlegm could be indicative of a bronchial infection. Most likely, the doc’ll throw some antibiotics at you and you’ll be fine in a day or two.

It’s not a problem if you swallow it in the meantime. There’s nothing in it that will make you sick, just germs that will get digested as soon as it hits the stomach.
