Bronchitis: Chest discomfort with white phlegm may be from a viral bronchitis. If the phlegm turns yellow, green or red see the doctor to check for a bacterial infection which may respond to an antibiotic. Recurrent symptoms should always be evaluated by the doctor. Do not smoke or use any tobacco products... 'Prevention Works!'
