Clear Bubbly Flem
Recently quit smoking waking w noc asthma attacks-coughing up clear bubbly phlegm-otherwise young healthy active female. COPD? Cause for alarm?
Unlikely: COPD takes years to develop so this is probably not that. This is probably combination of allergies and poorly controlled asthma.

This could be...: Time to stop smoking. All smokers need to quit smoking. However, the nicotine is extremely addictive, which is why the tobacco industry is able to keep selling so much of their products. One can work with his primary care doctor on quitting.

Depends: If symptoms have lasted less than 7days, use Ibuprofen 400 3 times a day for 3days, then as needed. Take 2 showers a day, as warm as you can tolerate, run the water right on your face to heat and and humidify the mucous, so you can cough it up and blow your nose more easily, then put mentholatum right under your nostrils. The eucalyptus in mentholatum works. If symptoms worse and > 10d, see doc. ...Read more

Coughing/bringing up phlegm, no other symptoms of cold/flu. Phlegm is usually whitish clear. Why?
Cause is ALLERGY! If there is no inflammation from infection (yellowish/green sputum) then you most likely have an allergic tracheobronchitis (a "relative" of asthma) An anti-histamine containing expectorant might help (eg: Phenergan (promethazine) Excpectorant) Check with your PCP (Primary Care Provider)
Hope this helps

I started coughing a month ago. Small About of clear phlegm. Voice was horse. Better but, not gone no Other symptoms.?
Have bubble things under skin on line of where my underwear are. One popped and nothing but clear liquid came out. What is it?
Likely not serious: You may have had irritation or a mild allergic reaction to the underwear that caused inflammation causing that. But it's best to have a doctor look at it to make sure it's nothing else -- rash diagnoses really depend on what it looks like. You could watch and see what happens it may go away on its own. If liquid keeps draining and it gets red you may have an abscess that needs to be drained. ...Read more
I'm a smoker and I've been having pains in my chest and I've been coughing up brown and clear flem that sometimes has blood in it?
6 months ago I got a cold and was coughing up green phlegm. Ever since then I have clear phlegm coming up and every few weeks it goes green again?
Phlegm: Hi! Chronic or ongoing phlegm production could be due to an infection, chronic bronchitis or something like allergies. If this has been going on for 6 months, then it is probably a good idea to get evaluated. You could try an over the counter allergy medicine (such as Zyrtec) to see if you get relief. If you do, then it would give some information on possible cause. Please get it evaluated. ...Read more

I've been coughing on and off phlegm for over a month, it's clear but the weird thing my chest feels like air pockets are in there. What could this b?
Clarify...: Do you mean you can feel air pockets under your skin on your chest? Does the skin on your chest feel kind of like bubble wrap that you can pop? If so, you need to go to the ER for evaluation ASAP! If this description is right, that is called subcutaneous emphysema and the cause of this needs to be diagnosed. For example, you may have blebs in the lungs which burst with coughing. Good luck!! ...Read more

Blocked gland: Occasionally one of the glands on the surface of the eye will seal over and continue to secrete clear fluid which will make a bubble on the eye surface. These are harmless, and will not affect the vision or the health of the eye. Eventually most get big enough that they pop open (you will not feel this) and disappear. ...Read more
