A member asked:

I got a cold in taiwan in march. i have recovered except for excess mucus in throat and desire to cough. desire will go away if i swallow mucus. ?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Cough: If you had a heavy cough with discolored sputum which has now improved and the mucus is colorless at this time, you probably have some residual noninfectious irritation in the trachea(windpipe). This is best treated with a cough suppressant syrup like robitussinDM to sooth the irritated trachea as the more you cough, the more it's irritated. See your physician as needed.
