Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Excessive mucus can be due to the environmental allergies, or underlying lung conditions like interstitial lung disease, or COPD.You will need a CT scan of the lungs with contrast, also a pulmonary function test.Medications like Tiotropium inhaler and Budesonide oral inhaler daily can be tried to control the symptoms.Also a bronchoscopy is suggested to collect the lug fluid for checking fungal or any bacterial infection or even malignancy.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the smiley faces) under this chat box only.Please bookmark my profile for asking further questions!This is the link to my profile:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-mysticdoc/
