Hello I have flat red marks on my face which I think is Petechiae and I just wondered if you had any advice on how to get rid of it?
Need to examine:
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. It is unlikely that the marks are petechiae as these tend to disappear on their own in a matter of days if not faster. It would be prudent to see your doctor for an evaluation.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

I have never been able to cough up phlegm I gag and then vomit. I currently have a chest cold and I can not get rid of the phlegm. Any suggestions?

The thinner phlegm should be absorbed by your body or swallowed and exit through the GI tract.
See doctor if fever or not improving ...Read more
