You can't do much about the Crohns except manage the flare ups - for this it is best to be under the treatment of a gastroenterologist as the treatment is not always easy to manage. With Crohns you don't have a choice - you have to use corticosteroids from time to time. Not using it will be more harmful.
I think if you still have yellow or green sputum on Avelon, you should send a sample to the lab to see if you have a resistant kind of bacteria so that they can treat it more specifically. Avelon is quite strong and should usually help. Have you given it enough time to work? It may take a few days to "kick in". Try steaming - boiling water in a bowl with a towel over your head and breathe in the steam to help loosen the phlegm. Maybe you should also take a probiotic 3 times a day to put back some of the normal bacteria in the bowel.
