I smoked 6 fags one week ago . I don't smoke but it was a silly one off . Now I have lots of phlegm comeing up and my throat hurts ? Whats wrong
Your lungs work: If you were in a house fire last week, you would be coughing up "junk" for a week or two--it is your lungs that still have cilia that work like little brooms to sweep out the tar/smoke solids/etc. From the cigs. It will stop. Humidifier/vaporizer (/hot shower) can help with this, and help throat, often sore from frequency/intensity of cough. Please avoid in future, your lungs will thank you! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My husband has post nasal drip with a lot of phlegm. He also uses adair twi ce a day. Is a camera down his throat the only way to examine him?
Unclear question: I've heard nothing here that suggests he needs an endoscopy, so i guess the short answer is no. A camera down his throat is not the only way to examine him. But if there is some other reason to examine his throat or lower airway, then endoscopy is very safe and usually the only way to look for certain abnormalities. ...Read more

The key to effective treatment is to identify the cause. Saline irrigation is noninvasive and sometimes very effective first step ...Read more
