I quit smoking for about 3 months now but I still clear/cough and I have brownish and black its thick.Is this something I should worry about or is my lungs doing what they need to do and this is normal ?
A bit odd, but: If there are no other symptoms, you could give it a bit longer - but those colors do sound strange. Even many active smokers don't have that. An exam would help you not worry unnecessarily and get you a lot of congratulations for quitting. Doctors love to hear that! ...Read more
I have had a cough and my lungs hurt! i was staying in a friends apartment that had black mold all over. Day/night quill is not helping wht to do?
Dayquil/Nyquil R not: For allergies. U apparently r allergic to mold & smoking makes u more susceptible to lung irritation by mold. (smoking inhibits lung's ability to flush mold or other foreign material from body). Antihistamines (zyrtec/claritin/ benadryl) may help. If problem worsens, see doc. Mold spores may have entered lungs & taken up residence. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Don't delay: Asthma is not a disease to take lightly or ignore. If night time symptoms occur more than twice a month or day symptoms more than twice a week, asthma is not controlled. There are many triggers that should be evaluated for and with nasal congestion, consideration to allergies and sinus issues is high. There are many excellent medications available to treat asthma and allergies. Relief is there. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
