Cefdinir 600MG and probiotic sinuses draining into throat, cough up white foamy/slimy green mucus. When I swallow after, hear/feel crackle in throat.

Cefdinir 600MG and probiotic sinuses draining into throat, cough up white foamy/slimy green mucus. When I swallow after, hear/feel crackle in throat.

Take full course: I'd keep going with the cefdinir it until it's all finished. I am not sure how long you've been taking it but if you are on days 1-7, have faith and keep going. If you have any new fever, or are having additional symptoms after one week on meds, that would be time to return to your doc for re-evaluation. You're on a potent antibiotic, so I bet you'll be feeling better soon. Rest and fluids!! ...Read more

Dose silent reflux in a baby cause a cough and phlegm in throat with frothy texture in a 4.5 month old baby he's on losec (omeprazole) but i can't get rid of cough?

Dose silent reflux in a baby cause a cough and phlegm in throat with frothy texture in a 4.5 month old baby he's on losec (omeprazole) but i can't get rid of cough?

It can: Reflux in infants is a common trigger for a cough. The Prilosec decreases stomach acid and may decrease irritation, but it does not stop the reflux, it just makes it less painful. With time and gradual assumption of an upright posture for more hours/day, the reflux and related cough decreases. It iften peaks around the 4-5 month period. ...Read more

I constantly feel a tickle in my throat, wake with yellow phlegm and clear white phlegm from my throat, is this tuberculosis?

I constantly feel a tickle in my throat, wake with yellow phlegm and clear white phlegm from my throat, is this tuberculosis?

Unlikley: Tb is more likely to present with chronic cough - usually bloody with a known exposure to tb. Unless you work in healthcare, have been around someone with tb, or travel to developed countries, your risk of contracting TB is low (real but low). I would think a more common cuase of your symptoms would be either allergy, sinus drainage, or acid reflux. Your local ENT can help determine cause. ...Read more

Phlegm in throat: Phlegm in the throat associated with throat clearing and heartburn symptoms sounds like acid reflux. Generally treatment would start out with acid avoidance (citrus, tomatoes, peppermint, coffee, peppermint, etc) Acid irritating the throat frequently results in increased mucous and prompts throat clearing. I advise increasing water intake and consider starting an antacid. See your doctor. ...Read more
