Many : Many sore throats will last 7-10 days. Viral infections will resolve on their own. Bacterial infections may need an antibiotic00strep throat needs an antibiotic or there may be risk of complications down the road (kidney, heart).

I've been coughing up phlegm in the morning after I wake up on and off for months, sometimes brown. My Dr. doesn't seemed concerned but still it persists. Also occasionally experiencing a minor sore throat.
No allergies to my knowledge and non-smoking,
Just came to a cold climate. Fever and headache on first day. Fever subsided the next day but now with sore throat and brown phlegm. Also coughing.
Just reached a cold country. Had a fever and headache, now fever is gone but having cough and bad sore throat, currently coughing up brown phlegm.
URI: You are in the midst of an upper respiratory infection. The productive cough indicates there is moderate phlegm inside your lungs. Drink lots of water to help thin it out. Drink hot tea/honey for the cough and consider some cilantro (usually I do pico de gallo) to help bring up mucous. See an MD soon to make sure it's in recovery. http://www.pdrhealth.com/diseases/cough ...Read more
