Chronic bronchitis


Smokers are more likely to cough at night and first thing in the morning because the smoke damages the lungs ability to clean itself so mucus sits during periods of inactivity, becomes discolored, and then is coughed out. If the green mucus is recent consider viral illness or pneumonia

May need antibiotics


You may have an oral-antral fistula (communication between the oral cavity and the maxillary sinus). You refer to a 3 month period with associated signs of infection. This may indicate a need for antibiotic therapy such as oral administration of penicillin-like antibiotics. The quiescence of infection may help the communication to heal and close. if it still persists you may need surgical closure.

Phlegm color can vary: sometimes it can be yellow, sometimes it can be white, sometimes it can be clear. "Bad" color types, so to speak, are like brown, dark green, or even bloody. If anything like this comes up, especially with fever, you should see your doctor right away.

 Smoking Smoking cessation Bronchitis Productive cough Chronic bronchitis Cough COPD Phlegm

Possibilities...


If you have a productive cough chronically, you may have chronic bronchitis, a form of COPD typically caused by smoking. You should see your doctor as this can be treated and symptoms lessened. If you still smoke, smoking cessation is also needed and your doctor can help with this as well.
