If you are having fevers and the mucus is yellow-green, see your doc for antibiotics. ...Read more

You may also have reflux. It may be time to see your physician. ...Read more

Once your doc makes sure nothing else is going on - like pneumonia or pertussis - then usually it's helping the symptoms. Rest assured, this usually goes away on its own.
