A 32-year-old female asked:
My 19 month old daughter just finished antibiotics for an ear infection and the next morning woke up with yellowish-green mucus from nose and cough?

See her doctor.: Yellow mucous does not mean that it's a bacterial infection or that it's an ear infection again. It may be a new virus & since antibiotics don't treat viruses, she could certainly get sick even if she was still on the antibiotic. It is important though for her to be checked to make sure the ear infection went away.
