Green mucous : Use of steroids in an infection is usually when there is reactive airway disease causing symptoms like shortness of breath or decrease exercise tolerance. If you are having mucous production 7 weeks after being treated for a bacterial pneumonia, seeing a lung specialist or your PCP is probably the next step.
