Take Honey: Get Netflix. watch a funny movie, rest, relax. Take honey - about one tsp 3x a day for the cough. Drink green tea with lemon and honey - at least six glasses / day. Green mucus suggest thick stale drainage, possible bacteria. Humming helps move the mucus. If persists, ask doctor about using Hydro Pulse Nasal/Sinus irrigator to remove stale phlegm and restore good cilia movement
