Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you have a bad cough and green mucous production
you should see your GP doctor again and get a sputum culture taken
some bacterial lung infections can be resistant to certain antibitoics.
a sputum culture can try to detect what bacteria is growing in your lungs and see what antibitoics it may be sensitive to.
you should ask for a course of steroids which can help decrease cough and inflammation in your airways.
you should try over the counter mucinex or Robitussin cough syrups and drinking a lot of water and seeing if that helps your cough
I hope you don't smoke
let me know if you have questions.
you are welcome
yes, submit a good sputum sample for the lab to test to check for bacteria resistant to antibitoics you have used before.
I'm glad you haven't smoked
ask for a course of steroids like prednisone which can help decrease inflammation in your airways which can help decrease cough
you can also ask for a prescription for stronger cough medications like guaifenesin and codeine which can help
