I've had a cold for about 5 days with as cough & mucus. In the morning the mucus is dark green & the cough is NT getting any better. Should I go in?
Cough + cold symptom: It would be difficult to determine what is causing this without being seen.

If you have a fever or the symptoms last longer then 10 days then you should see your doctor. You can try saline nasal spray and Mucinex (guaifenesin) to loosen the secretions if there is no fever. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

IM 25 weeks pregnant and have had a severe cold / cough this week. Bloody nose the past 3 days , mucus is a very dark green. Today my phlegm had blood?
See a doctor: With these sorts of symptoms, you need answers. I would worry that your platelet count might have dropped as a result of the viral infection - allowing the blood to become thinner, such that you'd have nose bleeding and blood in the sputum. Hopefully you're plugged into an Ob/Gyn practice - I would call them and try to get seen today. If it's after hours and you're not doing well- go to the ER. ...Read more
