Coughing up phlegm but not sick

For the past 12 days I have been coughing up and blowing out yellow/green phlegm through my nose.

In the first 7 days I had a slight fever, but that is gone now.

I have no other symptoms, except for coughing up sticky phlegm.

Hi Andy
You may have had a viral upper airway infection - try using something to loosen the phlegm like Bronkese/Benelyn cough mixture. It may also help to take something like Viral choice C or Echinacea to boost your immunity. If you are not feverish or feeling ill, you probably do not need antibiotics now.
