Hi everyone,
About a month ago, I started coughing up yellowish-green phlegm, so I went to the clinic, and they put me on antibiotics (Z-pak). It worked and after about 5 days of being on the Z-pak, I was better. However, literally to the day - one month later, I'm coughing up yellow-green phlegm again, and I've got a really runny nose and congestion.

So, this time, I went to my primary doctor, and he told me he wasn't going to put me on antibiotics since I just had a dose a month ago, and he told me to just drink lots of fluids and get rest. BUT, after 2 days since seeing him, I'm still coughing up yellow-green phlegm and have cold symptoms, but no aches, no fever, and no other malaise...just yellow-green phlegm in my cough and runny nose, sneezing.

So, I'm wondering if this will just go away or if I should revisit the antibiotics route...but...I don't want to if I don't have to because I just took them a month ago.

The idea that yellow/green phleghm is outdated... most of these infections will get better in the same time regardless of wether an antibiotic is taken

Buy some Primetane tablets from the pharmacy, these contain a bronchiodialator and a high dose expectorant to clear the muck out of your lungs
